What Are Business Forms Used For? Business forms are used for everything from employment to legal contracts. For employment purposes a business form is typically used to weed out potential employees. Through a series of forms an employer will gather information to decide who is the best qualified candidate for a position. A business also uses a slew of required forms for new employees to validate whether an employee is eligible to legally work in the United States. A form needs to be filled out so that an employer can do a background check. There are new employee hire forms that are used to gather information for insurance and pay information. Most businesses have some type of form that an employee needs to use to track work load's and attendance. There are businesses that use forms to keep track of inventory and supplies
Legal and government forms like employment administration, compensation, copyrights, passports, occupational safety and health administration are additional forms which will be needed for your business in most circumstances.
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).
Progressive revealing. When implemented well, progressive revealing gives interactive forms a head start over traditional paper forms. When asked a particular question in a form it may be the case that, depending a user's response, they are asked a set of specific sub-questions, or alternatively routed to the next appropriate section of the form. In paper forms the specific sub-questions can't be hidden from the user when they are not relevant to them - but in interactive forms this is relatively easy to do. Use progressive revealing as much as possible in your form design to shield your users from questions they don't need to see.
