Progress Trackers UI Design

─ If you know how many steps you must complete in the process, you’re more likely to complete the process.

─ Don’t make the process too long. 3–5 steps will be enough.

─ Use numbers to describe the steps and indicate where in the process the user is (e.g., Step 3 of 5)

─ Keeping Users Informed of Their Location

─ Since horizontal space is usually limited, a vertical progress tracker might be good solution for mobile apps and sites.

─ Think “users first.” Remember that we aren’t designing for designers. We are designing for our users.
