Use the multipage create, which employs the wizard component, when you want users to create resources by completing a set of interrelated tasks. We recommend multipage create for long or complex configurations.
Single page create
= 1 field
Between 2 and 15 fields in the primary section or up to 5 groups of settings
More than 16 fields in primary sections or more than 5 groups of settings
Basic text input fields and simple selects
Flow does not require any category to have its own page
Concepts require in-depth interactions that benefit from having their own page
Input is mutable after creation
Input mutable after creation
Input immutable after creation
In trigger page
In creation page
In every single step and in summary step
Deciding how many fields are in the primary section:
Any required field that we can’t provide a good default for (For example, a password).
Any field that 80% or more users would expect to see and want to know the value of in order to be successful (For example, knowing the security group associated with the resource, even when we provide a good default).
All other fields go into the additional configuration section with appropriate defaults.
Some flows have variables that are based on what the user chose in a previous step. The total number of fields should be considered for the longest possible variation of your form.
Complexity refers to the types of interactions in your flow. In some cases, interactions are complex enough that having their own page will make it easier for users to complete and make better decisions.
For configurations that allow or disallow a correction or modification without creating a new one.
Where in the flow errors can be caught, so the user can modify them in context.
Only use frequency as a criterion if you’re unsure which pattern to use.
