I'm trying to dig up some articles / research on improved registration conversions before implementing quick social registrations (facebook, google, yahoo,etc..) on long forms. If you do have such data would love a link or would love to hear about your personal experience.
In particular I am most interested in registration on sites that require more information than just password, email.
I am in the middle of a project where we handle some personal information, such as users addresses. Obviously we don't want to display a users address to someone other than that user. Now I'm looking for ways to "obfuscate" the address in a way that makes it obvious to the right person that the address displayed is her address, but not for others.
I wrote this article on innovative techniques to simplify your sign ups and logins and wanted to share it with the interaction design community in hopes to engage in a valuable discussion. We all know there is no one-size-fits-all way to design sign up and login forms, so please keep in mind that these are just ideas.
I'm looking for some examples of selection dependent inputs (selection of an option from one list determines the list of options made availablein the next list - I.e. region --> country) that allow multiple selections at any level of the hierarchy. For example, a user could select "oceania" from the region list and have all the countries in oceania appear in the countries list, or they could select "oceania" and "asia" from the region list and have the country list populate with all the countries from oceania AND asia.
Has anyone seen examples of this pattern?
There are a few ways you can align your button at the bottom of your form. But on multi-page and mult-section forms right aligned buttons work best. The article explains in detail why. Feel free to share your thoughts and knowledge.
Most of you are familiar with forms that highlight required fields. The problem with that is that most fields are required, so you end up having to highlight everything creating a clutter of asterisks or sub-labels.
I want to share with you a different approach that is much more minimalist. Feel free to chime in and let me know what you think.
