Provide checklists. As users complete your form, you may well be asking them to provide supporting information or attach supplementary documents where required. Providing a checklist, often at the beginning or end of a form, helps remind users about all the things they should remember to attach, and any further steps they need to go through.
Legal forms are a part of everyday business activities. Contracts are legal forms that lay out the responsibilities of businesses and their clients. A contract is a legally binding instrument that is written to protect the business and the customer/client. There are many reasons that a business has to use forms to conduct their business.
Use appropriate response mechanisms. Paper forms have the disadvantage that users can miss, or simply disregard, an instruction. For example, 'only tick/check one box' from a list of 15 or 20 options. In this context interactive forms can be programmed so that the user can only tick/check one (known as a 'radio button' as distinct from 'check-boxes'), or presented with the options in a drop-down menu from which the user can only select one. When designing forms make sure the response mechanism is appropriate to each question.
Make structure clear, and provide navigation to reinforce it. Your form will be divisible into sections so think about the broad groups of questions being asked. Whatever your groups of questions are, make sure they follow the right order and give the groups clear section names. Make the form sections visually distinct by setting the section name in bigger and bolder type, and consider including a contents list on the first page or screen to help people navigate their way through the form. Also make sure that you make good use of features like running headers and footers on every page to remind people what the form is, where they are, and what page number they are on.
