Multi-Step Forms

Multi-Step forms are groupings of form fields placed on separate pages that dynamically support users through the process of completing the transaction.

Benefits

Long forms can be a deterrent to users initiating the completion of a form. Breaking up forms can help the anticipated experience of completing a form feel more manageable for users, thereby helping to increase adoption and usage.

Multi-step forms can make use of conditional states and limit the amount of form fields that are presented to users.

Where form completion time requirements is expected to exceed 5 or 10 minutes, multi-step forms can allow users to save the state of their form in progress and return later to complete.

Standards

Use the standard progress bar to indicate progress to a user.

Group data according to like information type. Avoid overly short or superfluous steps if they can be combined with another similar step i.e. always group name and address information together

Form Controls

  • Progress bar (used only on a multi-step form - should allow user to navigate form)
  • Back button to previous pages (to amend responses)
  • Save button (functioning as a “save and next”)
  • A function to reset or clear page inputs should not be used as some users may inadvertently lose their progress by accidentally selecting the function.
