I'm working on a very large form, which is an adaptation of an excel file my client was using.
I need to find a way to group elements, align the fields, and manage several input types, keeping the form simple, compact and quick to fill.
The form is going to be used on a daily basis, by company staff, used to work with this kind of data via excel (and they use excel like experts). They want to get rid of excel files with calculations and macros, and I don't want to make the new form more complicated or difficult to scan / fill / understand than what they currently have.
My main problems are:
- Alignment and overal form length
- Fields with droplist (need space to expand)
- Fields with dynamic search have many options (could be more than 20)
- There could be very long labels (larger than fields or frame in the table-like approach)
- Placement of tooltips
Posting an image of the options I'm considering for now.
Any advice is welcome. Thanks!
