What Are Responsive Forms?
Your forms should work on all mobile devices to create a seamless experience for all employees. This means optimizing for Apple, Android and all sized devices, from tablets to smartphones.
Responsive forms get the job done because they automatically adjust for all devices, screen sizes and orientations.
Filling this form out on mobile would then require users to scroll and pinch to view all of the information. In fact, had the form not been optimized, it may not have been visible without scrolling since the large image would have crowded it out.
If you’ve ever tried to fill out a form on a mobile device that isn’t optimized for the mobile experience, you will know how frustrating the process can be. After pinching and scrolling for a while, you may have abandoned the task completely and put it off until you can access a desktop computer.
Your customers and employees feel the same. Without optimization, they’ll abandon the experience and put it off until they can access their desktops. The greater the user effort and/or confusion, the worse the user experience, which wastes time and lowers productivity.
Why is Mobile Design so Important for the Modern Workforce?
Mobile applications and forms have become an important component of the modern workforce.
Create forms that work perfectly for mobile devices with this expert advice.
Whether it is a signup flow or a multi-view stepper, forms are one of the most important components of digital product design – so you need to design them so they work effectively on mobile devices.
Regardless of the device size, the easiest way to complete a form is in a linear fashion. Multiple columns disrupt a user's momentum (the users are likely to interpret the fields inconsistently, which is a negative factor in terms of usability) and can result in users having to resort to horizontal scrolling.
When it comes to laying out forms, you should design the entries in one column: if a form is in a single column, the path to completion is a straight line down the page.
The form field won't be wide enough to display the user's entire input, making them more likely to mistype their responses and leading to more erroneous forms being submitted
When a user is notified that they have entered erroneous information, they may have a hard time spotting and fixing the problem as they won't be able to see the entire invalid input
Placing the label above the form field when a user is browsing from a mobile device will ensure users can see the maximum width to input their details, since you don't need to use up any for the label. Writing your labels above the input fields also makes it much easier for you to write clear and meaningful field labels, as you won't be limited to one or two words.
