Hello form builders,
Zoho Forms is now introducing an elegant, free-flowing fluid design of Card forms that will give your forms a visually appealing look, while avoiding any visual clutter for users who are attempting to answer multiple questions at once.
Zoho Forms offers 2 Form Types: Standard and Card
A Standard form has multiple fields on it asking questions all in one page (unless you have a multi-page form
), whereas a Card form has only one field per page of your form.
By displaying only one question at a time, Card Forms can spruce up and make your form's interface more user friendly and engaging.
Advantages of Card Forms
- Displaying one field at a time to the users reduces the cognitive load on their eyes and distraction.
- Lets users focus on each question and its answer, resulting in more pertinent responses.
- Card forms make it easier for the users to fix their errors one at a time, making it more convenient to submit the form.
- The user experiences a sense of progression as they move on to the next step, which makes form-filling a satisfying experience.
The font size you select is dynamically adjusted for all text on your form, including the button text, resulting in a responsive form.
Card Forms have animation effects with subtle movements that are particularly useful when you want to provide visual confirmation of user action, require mandatory fields to be filled out, or highlight error messages as the user navigates through the form to capture the user's attention.
The respondents will have previous and next buttons on each page to navigate through your form, as well as have a side panel (a Fields Pane) that lets them jump between questions on the form.
Using Standard or Card form type is a completely personal choice depending on your business objectives. For instance, if you have a long application form which respondents are likely to fill out on a desktop, you could choose the Standard form type and if you have a simple and short form, such as a feedback form, it would be a great choice to go for a Card form.
