Our website allows for submitting orders that are incomplete (drafts). Note that this is different from having invalid formatted data or what have you.
When the user is ready to actually submit an order, some validation must happen to make sure everything that is required is filled out.
I'm curious on what would be a good user interface to notify that there are some errors that need to be correct.
Our order form consists of a header form, with buttons to access the line items which pop up in a modal view.
Possibly a static element floating at the top or bottom, with back and forward arrows which the user can use to browse through the errors would be useful? Fields could be highlighted when hitting the back and forward arrows too.
I haven't ran across such a design before. Is there something that would be more familiar to the user? Something simpler to design?
