It’s always better to ask less number of questions to your users. And you should be getting all you need to understand about the user or anything you were asking them.
Asking many questions increase the chance of user leaving the site without giving the required information or conversion. But sometimes you would require more information which can’t be asked in less number of questions.
If you can’t ask less questions, then make it look like it.
Why not use Multi Page Forms? It’s easy using WPForms.
Here are some reasons to consider creating a multi-step form using WPForms.
- Encourage user focus: By grouping things, users are most likely to give answers to your questions.
- Reduce form abandonment: Users will be more likely to complete the information you are requesting when it’s broken down into pages.
- Collect only what you need: You can have a WordPress multi-step form with conditional fields using Conditional Logic. Show different pages of the form based on which answers users provide.
Step 1: Create a Form in WordPress
All you need is WPForms plugin and create a form with it.
WPForms » Add New to create a new form.
You can make it into multi page form using WPForms. You can create simple forms or choose a template from WPForms.
Step 2: Split Your Form into Different Parts
If you have added the form, you can split into different pages using Page Break in WPForms.
You can add Page Break where you want to break the form. But I suggest limiting the number of questions asked, so, users will fill your form.
Step 3: Customize the Progress Bar
Your form needs a progress bar, to make users stay on your page. If it is a multi-page form without a progress bar, users will consider it as too long and most of them will leave the site without filling your form.
WPForms allow you to different types of progress bar on your multi page form. It comes with three different breadcrumbs style.
- Connectors: shows a connecting bar and page titles of each part of your multi-step form.
- Circles: shows one circle and page title per page on your multi-step form.
- Progress Bar: indicates the progress of the form as the user fills it out.
And it is done. But if you want you can configure more things in WPForms.
There are four configuration settings available in it.
We will be configuring only these.
In General, you can configure,
- Form Name
- Form Description
- Submit Button Text
- Spam Prevention
- AJAX Forms
- GDPR Enhancements
When you are done configuring it, you can click on Save. In WPForms, you can configure most of the things.
After you are done with General settings, you can configure Notification settings. Unless you disable this feature, whenever someone submits a multi-page form on your site, you’ll get a notification about the submission.
And when you are done with Notfication settings, you can configure Confirmation, which helps tell the form, what to do when user clicks on confimation.
There are three confirmation types you can choose from.
- Message. This is the default confirmation type in WPForms. When a site visitor submits a form, a simple message confirmation will appear letting them know their form was processed.
- Show Page. This confirmation type will take site visitors to a specific web page on your site thanking them for their form submission.
- Go to URL (Redirect). This option is used when you want to send site visitors to a different website.
And when you are done with settings, you can add your form in any page or posts in your site. WPForms help you create forms fo free. WPForms also have paid plans which offers more features in WordPress.
