How do you design super long forms?

    Have you tested different form input styles with your users to see which performs the best? Who is resistant to the change? Engineers? PM? Why are they resistant? Implementation effort & time? Other priorities? I think getting answers to those questions and testing would give you enough info to tell a compelling story for keeping, modifying, or completely changing your form designs & interactions.

    Also, if you take a look at that article that was shared, it's actually extremely subjective. Almost every point he makes against labels inside a field could be solved by a better design example than he chooses. I would look at other research that's been done with real data and not opinion-based. Look at the comments in that article for some really great responses.
