Forms for the site features of creation and design
Forms for the site: features of creation and design to perform a lot of functions on modern sites, you need different forms. You can use them, for example, to communicate with visitors (feedback forms), accept orders (online order forms), register new users (registration forms), subscribe (subscription form), and so on. Various forms for the site have their own features of creation and design.
Many Internet users will confirm that the impression that the site makes on the user depends on how easy and convenient it is to fill out and or another form on the site. After all, if, for example, it is easy to fill out the form and all the necessary actions are clear to the user, then it is likely that he will complete the filling successfully and remain on the site. But if the form is complex and causes a lot of questions when filling out, then it is likely that it will be easier for a site visitor to refuse to fill it out than to continue. At the same time, a site with such an “inhospitable” form is likely to be closed by an Internet user.
Therefore, designing forms within the framework of creating websites is very important, and in modern web design, you can even distinguish an entire direction dedicated to creating custom web forms. The efforts of web designers are focused on developing web forms that would, on the one hand, allow visitors to perform the necessary actions faster, and on the other hand, allow site owners to get all the necessary information after filling in.
Usability of forms for a site plays a big role, regardless of which form is being developed. However, it is fair to note that the greatest interest and concern among site owners is always caused by forms for online ordering of goods or services, because such forms are directly able to influence the level of income that sites give.
When filling out an online order form on websites, users realize that this action is usually irrevocable: after placing an order, they will not be able to refuse it. Therefore, the attitude of users to such forms is always wary. And in the online order form, any actions to fill out must be clearly understood by users in order to avoid possible misunderstandings and reduce the fear of users. This should be facilitated by the instructions that accompany the form.
So, each field of the form must have a signature, does not allow double interpretation, and clearly indicates what information should be entered in this field. If this field has restrictions on the number or type of characters entered, then you must specify such information in the field caption.
The number of required fields in the form must meet the task of this form. For example, in the product order form on the site, the fields for entering the full name, surname and patronymic, as well as the user’s contact phone number are required — without these data, it will be impossible to confirm the order. It is clear that in most cases, fields for entering the delivery address of the product, fields for choosing the payment method for the product and its delivery are also needed on the order forms.
But fields such as the email address field or, say, the user’s gender or age selection field may be completely unnecessary on the product order form. Unless, of course, we are talking about cases where the user must receive an order confirmation by e-mail, and the sale of goods is carried out only to a certain number of people (for example, over 18 years old): in such situations, these fields are appropriate.
In the framework of one and the same shape should be possible to avoid multiple confirmation actions. As practice shows, often a large number of “Confirm” or “Accept” buttons only prevents users from successfully filling out forms, because users either do not notice these buttons at all, or take them as the main ones for the entire form. As a result, the process of filling out the form is delayed.
Thus, in creating forms for a site, everything is important, from their carefully thought-out structure and the color of the selected fonts or the size of the input fields. Therefore, when creating website design or redesigning interactive forms, attention is always paid to both specialists responsible for technical implementation and specialists working on the visual design of such forms.
