Hi,

I'm looking for examples of very long forms, or forms for gathering
lots of data. Forms that have multiple questions (20+) for gathering
lots of long answers (150 words +).

I'm thinking these would be like Resume Builders, Grant
Applications, Business Plans...

Anyone seen or worked on something like this?

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris,

Krop's portfolio and resume builder has a pretty nice UI.

Hope that helps

I am using emailmeform.com to create my forms and so far I am
satisfied with it.
They are mostly for online forms ( forms will send emails when filled
up and submitted ) but it can also be used for offline forms

Hi Chris,
I think it's pretty common to use the Wizard pattern
(HTML<http://quince.infragistics.com/Patterns/Wizard.html>
/Quince <http://quince.infragistics.com/#/Main/ViewPattern$pattern=Wizard>)
for these. TurboTax is a long-standing example in that space from what I've
seen, though doubtless there are plenty of others. If folks have more
examples, please consider adding them. ;)

Hi chris,

A side question:

maybe the first is to think about reducing the length?

It depends on the user base. If they are repeating the form over and
over again, then it should be one page.

If it's the first time user who uses it once every four months, a
wizard?
