Today, I'm dealing with forms of all kinds. There are small ones, large ones and then ones capable of making a user cry. It is necessary evil - because it is an application that collects a user's information for his visa/citizenship application.
My concern is, the user might get frustrated, because it looks long with many empty text-fields to fill up, but in reality - it doesn't take much time to complete. So I wanted to display an approximate time taken to fill it on top (given the user has pre-required documents). The fields are auto saved upon each edit.
Any recommendations / improvements / suggestions? I did some diligent googling for similar patterns, no bueno. The only intention here is to inform the user "hey it looks like a tedious task, but trust me - it would only take you X ~ Y minutes to fill".
