Is there any research on whether users prefer a single sign up view over a multi-view sign up process?
What is your take on this?
Use social login :-)
Jokes aside, it takes the same number of steps to between three input boxes on one screen versus three input boxes on three screens.
However, it's always nice if you can set an expectation for the user by showing how many and what pieces of info they need to fill.
Pros of multi-view:
Pros of single view:
By showing everything on one screen, users right away see everything they will need to fill out. Users like to be in the know :)
It is easier for users to correct previous field when they can just click on an above field, instead of needing to go back a whole page.
Single View ftw! Since typing your username and password is so standard, most people look at the keyboard most of the time and hit enter automatically. In the single view you could instantly see any typos as a user in a multiview you would have to go back between screens. Plus the single view is the regular, that users are used to - don't reinvent the wheel.
