A view point given to me, is all people you making something for are your customer, so treat them as such.

Just because user is in house, doesnt mean there should be any short cutting what you aim to delivery for them.
and asking WHY they need this new button on the page can, what is the BUSINESS reason for it, not the technical reason, which might lead to well they want the button there, but not realise they doing 3 steps to many, and retraining them would be better use then development work.
Business Problems instead of Software Problems
