UI for multi-step process


Hi all! I have a question for the seasoned designers out there. What UI would you recommend for a multi-step process where it might be advantageous for the user to see their selections from the previous steps (I can not display everything on the screen at once, that will overwhelm the user)? I could use a wizard type design with a progress bar at the top and previous/next buttons, but that might be annoying for users to have toggle back and forth between steps. Or I could use some sort of accordion? I will obviously do lots of usability testing but trying to decide what design to start with…

This solution is for desktop and tablet only. Not mobile.



What about splitting the page? Having the wizard use half the page and have the other half display the information that has been entered previously?
