Provide examples and guidance and notes at the point of need. Have you ever got half-way through a form and suddenly come to a question that asks you about something you don't understand or have no idea about where to find the answer? It's even more infuriating if the question says something like 'See our Guidance notes, page 6, paragraph 2'. When filling in your forms people want the information they need there and then. Put yourself in the form user's position and think about which questions they might have a problem with. Provide examples of the sorts of answers you are looking for, and where appropriate, provide guidance notes as near as possible to the question they relate to (i.e. in the actual form).
If you are in charge of Hiring at your company then you will need access to a supply of job applications, there are several different ways to get access to the applications that you need, but each one will require a different level of work and expense for you. You can buy your forms at the store, but likely they will be expensive and may not be what you want them to be. You can type up your own but that takes a lot of time and knowledge that you may not necessarily have access to. You can have one custom made for you but again that may be costly, finally you can find a printable job application form that works perfectly for you and will not cost you a dime.
Planning is an important aspect of creating business forms. It is important to plan what exactly the forms will be used for. There is certain criteria that should be considered. How important is the form? What specifics need to be addressed in the form? A business legal form is usually legally binding so being sure that the form fits all the local rules and requirements is also very important. Coming up with several prototypes is typical when planning a business form. Generating the forms than reviewing the finished product is also a common practice. Ideas during the planning stage can come from different sources. There are a lot of online websites that will provide a sample of various forms, it violates copyright laws to use the form verbatim in most cases, but looking at the form and using the same format is not a violation, and there may be some good ideas that will inspire the creation of the form.
So what do you do, for example, if you need to start sending an invoice to collect from your first few clients? The obvious answer is to make one from scratch, or to hire a printer to produce one for you. What if of these two are an option, either because you don't know how an invoice looks like or you have no sufficient funds to outsource it to a printer and have it produced by bulk?
