Different Approach to Highlighting Required Form Fields

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.

Looking for research on automated, temporary passwords for new users

Hey all, have any of you had successful experiences with automated, temporary passwords being generated during the user sign up process?

I didn't read anything about this in  Luke Wroblewski's work and am looking for some insight. Our demographic is composed of many people in their 50's and 60's. I am looking to increase the ease of the signup process.

Contact/Telephone Numbers in Forms

We are currently re-looking our Forms with regards to the way contact numbers are entered. Presently we have two text-boxes, one for area/country code, and then one for the number.

I'm trying to do some research on the best way to present this to users. Do any of you have any ideas and possibly a few sites that I can use to benchmark against?

Thanks in advance!

The influence of pre-populating web forms

I'm currently working on a revision to a checkout process in which we're debating the pros & cons of pre-populating certain fields.

The application allows users to select an item for "purchase" and pledge an amount related to the value of that item. This means they can in fact pledge more than the stated amount for the item, or the exact amount of the item. They obviously cannot pledge lower. 

The debate is such:

Do we pre-populate the form field with the amount of the selected item or leave it blank to encourage some percentage of greater pledge.

Using buttons as CTAs (Calls to Action) vs. Text Links

In our work, everyone (stakeholders) wants to use a graphical button for their CTAs, often asking for multiple such buttons on a single page. The notion is that these will drive a higher conversion rate... ON THOSE links. (These are not form submits, remember.) A proof of concept was done late last year to test the effectiveness of buttons vs. links on a particular page. Here was the scenario:

Top segment homepage, containing the following...

Recommendations for getting people to give their postal code

I have a quiz where people fill out 15+ questions to find out what kind of traveller they are. My client would like to ask them for their postal code, so that they can ultimately send people information and offers that are customized to their traveller type and location. They would also like the postal code to validate the geo segmentation research about the traveller type differences by location.

Quiz respondents are not asked for their full mailing address. They have an option to opt in to receive further information by providing an eMail address.

Forms design / labels inside the fields

Hi,

In the company I'm working with a discussion has just been started;

TOPIC: Whether placing a labels inside the fields is a good idea or
not. This pattern is spreading recently (i.e. facebook) a lot.

Personally, I'm not supporting this idea for many reasons
(accessibility, patterns in an eye fixation on form elements etc).

Though, I'd like to avoid religious debate on this issue and follow
up with some objective studies and/or research.

Have you analyzed this issue before or seen some interesting
findings? User studies?
