Rule n° 86 - The current step in a complex process is indicated.

Have you ever wondered, in the middle of a rather long process spread over several successive forms, where exactly you were?

#Accessibility #Forms #Conception


  • Allow users to determine their progress in a process.
  • Reassure users when engaged in a complex process.


Specify on each page of the process the step corresponding to the current page.


In the case of complex processes, check, in each relevant page, that the current step is indicated in

  • the page title;
  • in the page content, either highlighted in the page or in the step path of the form header, for example "Step 2 - Contact Information" or "Step 4 - Payment".
