How a form looks like?

Data collection forms receive information you want to process or save. When you create a form that collects information, the information you need is what drives the structure and complexity of the form:

Just a little: If you need just a little information, the form may be short and (relatively) sweet.

Example: The below snippet uses a form to collect information from teachers to subscribe to a free electronic newsletter. This doesn’t need much information to set up the subscription, so the form is short and simple.

Lots: If you need a lot of information, your form may be several pages long.

Example: The following example uses long and detailed forms to gather the information it needs to help customers refinance a vehicle loan. The page below shows just the first two of numerous panes that a visitor must fill out to provide all the necessary information.
