Andrew Coyle, a product design lead. Today’s blog, I will jot down some of them down to help make your forms more practical.
Forms are a very important part of digital product design and it’s crucial to have them as user-friendly as possible. The tiniest change can make a big difference when filling out a form. Of course that isn’t to say that everything you read in this article is hands down the be all and end all, no. There are times when you will opt for a different design to serve a specific purpose or you may find one option more appropriate than the other, but here are some design techniques proved to have worked better than others:

If you have less than 6 options, there is no need to hid them all in a drop down menu, instead have them all shown next to each other. This makes it easier for the reader to select and option.
