Question: How do you best clarify the primary action the user should take?


Primary action: intended action of a section, such as a dialog confirmation or form submission; "final" action; primary goal; typically positive (https://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?571)

Secondary action: less utilized action; typically negative; alternative to the primary action (https://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?571)

Tertiary action: miscellaneous actions, not the intended (https://uxdesign.cc/ui-cheat-sheets-buttons-7329ed9d6112); can have similar style as a secondary action, but need to carry different visual weight (https://uxmovement.com/buttons/visual-weight-of-primary-and-secondary-action-buttons/)
