Enrollment Form Design Questions
Posted on 2011-09-27
I have been asked to redo a enrollment application from an older employee who is no longer with the company. To make a long story short, the past employee created a webpage with 100 questions on it which are diveded by 9 different sections on the same page.
I have been asked to shorten the enrollment application into 9 different pages which are 9 different sections one section per page. This system is only going to collect data at the moment but may be used later down the road for updating the data. As of now the data will get imported into another system.
The questions I have are below which are stumping me from continuing :(
1. I need to make sure the enrollment application colllects the users personal information before continuing to other sections. This needs to be required because I need the unique generated ID to pass to the other sections tables in the DB.
2. How can I fill out the other sections after user has submitted his/her personal info going from page to page? I know that I need to store the unique ID into Session which I'm not sure if that's best practive these days or not. I welcome other ideas...
3. What is the best way to have the user fill out the other sections if they cannot continue in one sitting? Should I generate a random generated username/password for user to enter to pull up his/her unique ID to pass to other pages when they decide to contine the other pages (sections)?
I could really use help with this :( Need to give BOSS an answer tomorrow on how I can do this and then I need to start the process.
