This might sound complicated, but I’m REALLY interested in people’s opinions…
We have a form that our users can use to create a document. Sometimes the document could be quite long. The form is simple, but the user can [+ add] some of the fields if they want to enter more than one of that ‘type’ of data. Which is quite likely.
We have a [preview] function so that people can see what their document will look like for the recipient. (this ability is very important to the user).
We have 4 required fields in the form. I am assuming users will want to be able to preview as they go, even if they haven’t completed all the required fields. My team does not agree. I know the answer to any question is ‘test with the user’ which we will. I am just interested to know how much of an outlier my assumption is.
Do any of you UXers share my assumption? Or am I really left-field here?
Looking forward to some replies!
