New user interface save/discard form

The new user interface is causing confusion for our users and I need to
emulate the old ‘Save & Exit’ OR ‘Ignore changes’ options.

I’d like to insert a final question at the end of all our forms which has
the following options and actions:

  1. Save form?
    • Yes
    • No

Selecting ‘Yes’ would . . . save the form

Selecting ‘No’ would do the equivalent of the following in the old
interface: tap the back button and select ‘Ignore changes’.

How would I implement this?

Simon,

Sorry about the issue, but I’m a bit confused as to what you are referring
to. The new ui shouldn’t change the behavior that occurs when you press
android’s “back” button, and it should still present the same items to the
user, to exit the form ignoring changes, save incomplete and exit, or
return to form entry depending on whether incomplete forms are activated.

What is the missing behavior that you are trying to replicate?

Hi Clayton

Thanks for your response.

In the old user interface when you swiped after the last question in a form
the system presented you with a ‘Save & Exit’ button and at this point you
could hit the back button and select ‘Ignore changes’. It’s this that I
want to replicate. In the new interface when you hit the ‘>’ on the last
question it just saves (with no warning).

Simon

PS: User feedback - I do not like the behaviour of the new user interface
where a swipe works on all but the last question. I don’t think this is at
all intiative and users of the old system think the form has broken or the
tablet has hung-up. This is going to have significant user support issues
for us unless we can emulate the old system in some way (eg as described
above).

Simon,

The behavior that occurs when you press ‘back’ is consistent in the
interface, still. That is to say, users can press the back button and
select “ignore changes” at any point during form entry in order to cancel
the form and return to the menu.

It has worked well on some projects to replace the final screen with a
simple prompt that says something like

The form is over, please check the box below to confirm that it is complete
[ ] Confirm

and a conditional text below that says “You can press the Next button to
submit the form”

Apologies for the introduced difference in form submission. In our testing
we have found that although it takes a short time to re-adjust to the new
"confirm" option that users have been able to recognize the significance of
a “complete” form through a combination of the progress bar, green submit
button, and the inability to swipe to “complete” without needing the
landing page. If you are seeing significant troubles after users have had a
chance to adjust, please feel free to reach out.
