    Hi All,

    What's the consensus on multipage forms? I have a survey with about 13 fields. The fields can easily be grouped into 3 sections : 1) About You 2) Neighborhood and 3) Review.

    Should I split the sections into a 3 pages? Or should I keep the form one page and put headers for each section?

    Thanks

    To be honest, I would like to respond to a survey that can easily be done and can be finished within a minute or so.
    I kinda don't like answering long surveys that's more than a page long.

    I suggest make your survey short and simple but can still serve it's original purpose.

    Good luck on that.

    I would agree with GekiDan.

    Or how about making 5 questions compulsory and a further 5 questions optional?

    1) About You
    2) Neighborhood and
    3) Review.

    among 3 group of questions, group 3 is most important. To keep the survey short, you can focus to group 3 only. If I have to run a survey at BAF and I must get all 15 answers, I will give out my BAF cash as incentive. I always believe, incentive is a powerful momentum to encourage others to work with us.

    I think that keeping it on the same page is good just have people fill it out quickly. It would be hard to do a short filling of information if the information was on 3 pages instead of one in my opinion. :D
