Patterns

Question form

What does it do?

  • Asks a user questions which a service requires.
  • Helps to break down complex forms by spreading questions across multiple pages.

When to use it?

  • When you are asking users for information as part of a service.
  • When a form is required to be spread across multiple pages.

When not to use it?

  • When there are multiple questions on the same page, unless you have user research that says it makes sense to group the questions.

How it works?

  • Always test questions with users through user research
  • Make sure your question makes sense
  • Sometimes it makes sense to group a few questions on the same page
  • Make sure users know why you're asking the question and only ask users for information you really need
  • Add (optional) to the end of each question that is optional


Form Element

This pattern can be populated with any form element, such as text, radio buttons, checkboxes, dropdown or file upload.
