So I need to design onboarding screens for a credit card company. I started to look around on different onboardings and collect ideas from different products such as Lemonade, Forward, Grammarly etc.
I noticed that instead of showing the upcoming steps, there’s only a bar indicates the progress.
What’s the logic behind it? I always thought that indicating the exact number of steps is essential information for the user.
What do you think? In which cases showing steps is a must? Do you have any articles or researches on this topic?
