Purpose The wizard pattern is useful for guiding the user step by step through a process of either gathering information or basic configuration of an application. Guidelines Provide a clear and easily understandable description of each step. Follow the wording guidelines. In addition to Next/Previous buttons, Include a list of steps that allow the user to track the current progress. The list should clearly identify the steps that have been completed and the steps that have not. Where possible, the user should be allowed to jump back to previous steps by selecting the step from the list. Where possible, the user should be allowed to quit the wizard at any time without adverse impacts. On the last step, provide a clear summary of the task accomplished by the wizard and a Finish button to make it clear to the user that this is the last step.
