Dear All,

I had asked the question about Registration UI:

Is it better to have a single long registration page instead of split pages?
The single page, although scrollable, can give all the information required
at once and users will not have to wait for each page download.

Thanks a lot for your responses.

Let me share with you what we did meanwhile. We conducted a quick and dirty
usability test on the existing 4 step interface and proposed single page
registration. The results show that the time required to fill the form
(activity time) excluding the downloading time, is improved by 45% in the
single page approach. There are other advantages of single page approach
such as efficient error handling, user getting to know all the information
upfront etc.

I understand that this is from the pure users' perspective and other
dimensions like need of capturing marketing data even without complete
registration will have bearing on the final solution.

Many thanks to all,
