I have a web page/form which users have to fill in before clicking the 'proceed' button.
Same old story I guess. It looks like this:
report name: [...] report type: (*) PDF ( ) HTML Level Of Detail: [Easy v] Template: [Natural v] ...
To make user's operations as easy as possible, most of the default values have been set.
However the number of fields is about 10 options and I fear that the page might look too intimidating.
I am thinking to put a switch on the top (basic/advanced) which would allow me to hide/reveal the options.
This would imply that, if the users land on the 'basic' page they should not feel too intimidated.
Is this a good idea ?
if so, can somebody also provide some real examples of where this approach has been taken ?
