What is the benefit of having a "Confirmation Page" after submitting a Form (e.g. "User Registration", "Order Checkout", etc.), and is it something you expect?? :-/
I ask this question from a selfish standpoint, in that it is EXPONENTIALLY HARDER to properly code such a page and keep the User's Data safe!!
(For something like an E-commerce Checkout Page, this also opens up a bunch of liability to me, because now I am passing Order/Payment data between pages, and if I make any design or coding issues, I run the risk of being sued until the end of time?!) :eek:
Obviously confirmation is much nicer for something like "Order Checkout", but what about things like "User Registration"?
Is it that likely that someone would screw up their Username or Email or Password (or change their mind at the last minute) and be saved if they had one final time to review things?
Again, even in this scenario, it is A LOT more work for me...
I don't mind doing it, if it really adds value, but I need to be careful and not build all of this fancy functionality that Users may not care about, and which adds unnecessary complexity (and liability) to my website!!
What do you think?
