Forms design - I'm researching and need help

Where are we on forms design today?

How far have we come on designing effective, intuitive, intelligent web forms? I'm researching forms design, both best practice and the more innovative ones. But I'm having a hard time finding really good examples.

HiOscar the insurance company is one example with some innovative qualities and certainly worth a study. But I'm searching for more advanced forms with higher complexity.

Looking for research, articles, case studies before and after on social registration vs non-social account registration


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.

Examples of engaging privacy policies / terms of engagement

Seen any privacy policies, credit card policies, terms of engagement, service agreements etc that don't just make your eyes glaze over and turn the page?

We're looking for examples (web based or paper based) where people manage to make this legalese heavy, text heavy interaction a positive one, or at least one that people don't just skip over.

Debates about web form design

I'll shortly be giving a talk that plans to address some of the most commonly debated elements of web form design.

I know what questions I get asked over and over again, but want to make sure my view isn't biased. So I'd like to hear from you. 

What debates — about competing approaches to the design of web forms, not general considerations per se — have you been involved in?

Ways to display addresses

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. 

Does anyone have any tips or ideas?

Form Best Practice for multiple options to upload text

Hi there.

I've been looking for some examples of forms which provide multiple options for the user to input an amount of text.

In my case it would be upload a document, link to the document online or copy and paste the text into a text area.

I'm looking to find out the best way of showing that you can only do one of the three actions.

Any advice much appreciated.

Innovative Techniques to Simplify Sign Ups and Logins

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.

Selection dependent input fields with multiple-select at any level

Hi. 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? Thanks, Marcus
