comment How to tackle a form with 50+ fields?
I had decided to change validation plugins. The one I am using now does not support tabbed, accordion, or wizard interfaces. This one does: formvalidation.io

Let me give you an idea of one of the validation issues. In the Addresses section, we have a mailing preference radio group. One of them MUST be selected and it depeneds upon whether the user has either their Business or Home address filled in. If the address isn't filled in, they cannot select it. However, if they already had a selection and the address is cleared, then the radio has to be cleared and the user MUST select the other one. One must always be selected before the data can be submitted.

Many of these suggestions are already being implemented.

figure out whether you can defer some fields until after the account is created The accounts are already created, this is similar to a profile page. The users are in the insurance industry and the Business Profile section is insurance related, such as License number, etc. There are 4 telephone numbers on Phone Numbers section with a Country code, number and optional extension. There are 2 addresses with 3 lines, city, state, country and zip and a mailing preference on the Addresses section. I'm not sure if I could "defer" some fields.

Yes, as I pointed out, they may only want to modify one field on the last portion of the form.

The fields are loaded at once using Razor code from a passed object to the ViewBag, they are not loaded via AJAX. However, I think I see your point in putting the submit only on the last form. But if I'm filling in the form and only need to change one field on the last page, why would I need to go through the entire multi-step setup?

Using an accordion ALSO has parts of the code that are not visible at times and thus the validation functions will not fire for those fields.

I like the idea of them being able to choose which email (masked, of course) to send to but what if they only have one email address?

Sorry but text message is out of the question for us at this time.

Do you know of a library to send the text message without knowing their carrier?

how do I send the Text Message if I don't know what carrier they use and when do I let the current users select which email to be primary much less let them enter a secondary email? What to do when they only have one email address, too?

On another note, implementing something now would not benefit the 300,000 user that we currently have in this matter.

We do ask for business and cell phone numbers, plus several other identifying fields, such as Employer, Job Title. We used to ask for Last4SSN but have opened up for int'l. registrations so we no longer ask for that. We are asking more for what techniques to use to change a user's EMAIL address if they do not remember their password.
