I'm looking for good examples of gradual engagement from the web, specifically while enrolling users or registering them and avoiding long forms to fill at one go.
Can anyone help me with such examples?
Hi, if I undertand your question correctly, Academia.edu and LinkedIn take this approach. You can put in relatively little information to start your account and add to it as you have the time or it becomes useful to you.
We had used gradual engagement when working on Chase's Mortgage site.
Click the "Get a custom rate quote" link in the "Today's Refinance Rates" box. The user can get a custom rate by filling in a few data points. Once they have a personalized rate quote, they can proceed to prequalification which captures more info...eventually leading to a mortgage officer who would have access to the accumulated customer info.
I would guess that other mortgage sites will have something similar. The industry has a need to offload the chore of collecting this data and the users have a desire for an accurate rate quote before committing to talking to a human.
GOV.UK are employing gradual engagement on many of their transactions. For instance, National Insurance refund claims.
Check out the Express Account Settings on the Account Info page of Apple Store.
Its perfect for the form where all the answers are not known in one go.
digikev, sorry, your example is not gradual engagement. This is a "wizard".
