I am building a feature where the user goes through a multistep wizard to enter information about a situation. There are multiple situations that can occur and the user may be taken through different steps with different fields depending on their choices. I want to persist the information the user has previously entered to the side of the wizard so the user does not lose situational awareness because there is a possibility that the user may be multitasking with multiple wizards open at the same time.
- Is there a name for this?
- Are there arguments for or against using this specific solution?
