Clearly communicate the current state of the app/service/website to the user Do not send the missed data to all users Add a button to retrieve the missed data This way users who need the data will get it and you will not put a load on your backend.

Implement a general "browse" feature. One social media-style app that impressed me with its new user experience is an app called Yonder. It's a photo sharing platform focused on outdoor adventure. I, being a brand new user, obviously was not following anyone on this new platform, but instead of presenting me with an empty feed, it defaulted my experience ...

Remember always, as a principle, that we (as dev) should try to prevent user errors as much as possible. You are talking about a form that is filled in 3 steps.
