Form Design — Main Aspects
Making the path smoother
Filling in forms is not the most delightful experience, but in some cases this is the most effective type of interaction for asking data needed to get the user closer to accomplishing her/his goal. By paying attention to the different aspects of Form Design, we can make the path of completion smoother, and as a result, have positive impact on the overall UX.
In the next parts of the Form Design series I zoom into some of these aspects:
- Form Design — Part 2: Layout, Structure, Progress
- Form Design — Part 3: Input Fields
- Form Design — Part 4: Labels & Defaults
