Transactional or complex forms should begin with a start page. Start pages are designed to offer a user an overview of:
- What transaction they are completing.
- How many pages or sections the form has.
- What information they may need to provide in order to complete the transaction.
Each start page should consist of:
- Name of the service.
- A short introduction.
- Number of pages / sections.
- A start button or call to action.
- Additional information.
Below is an example of what a start page should contain.
