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:
- the name of the service
- a short introduction
- the number of pages/sections
- a start button or call to action
- additional information
Below is an example of what a start page should contain.
