        Jerome, could you explain a bit more. Are you referring to the edit mode where the action is "save & view" and "save & continue"? If so I don't understand the issue. Thanks

        No, to the fact that some admin sections use the word "Save" as value of the submit button, while some use "Update", while there aren't fondamental differences between the forms

        The standard should be "Save".

        "Save" is used in the majority of our forms in the administration and also was voted by some people in my usability feedback sessions. It is also more common as a verb in the other public / well know websites.

        Besides the Office Importer section which cannot use 'Save' because it doesn't save any configuration (it just executes an action on the office server) the only one still using 'Update' is the search administration section.
