I have a form, which is on a page of its own - it's a huge one, and one of the internal reviewers recommended to add a cancel button to it. I am just trying to figure out if a cancel button is applicable in a full-page form.
I can't figure out what should be the behavior of the form when the cancel button is clicked. The recommendation given was that clicking the cancel button should take them to the main home page but that just seems odd since there is no guarantee that the person would have landed on the form page from the main page (or from any page) and I don't want users thinking "Wait, how did I just get to this page?"
So do you think I should push back and say a cancel button is not needed or do you see any specific value add to it?
Note: Please note I did look at the older questions
Is a cancel button necessary in a windows form? - This deals with modal dialogues so it's not applicable to my case
Is a cancel button necessary in a web form? - The question is generic and the responses don't really address my question.
