Our product has a large multi-tier category tree (300+ nodes) that a user needs to navigate to find their perfect category.
Our users are event marketers, and selecting their correct event category is critical to the product delivery. Users will 90+% of the time be filling out this forms via web app, mobile is a secondary concern.
New(er) implementation: http://g.recordit.co/LtutziUPZH.gif
- Select Tier 1 -> Select Tier 2 -> Select Tier 3...
- Searchable list, input '3' characters before any results
- Fully scrollable list
- Modal popup displaying entire category tree
The answer will likely be some combination of these. Does anyone have any similar experience to share?
