Lots of people tab through forms. It’s faster than using the mouse to move between fields and form filler-outterers often get in a groove, especially for common forms like an address.
So when you change that order, it’s annoying.
We recently moved, so I had to update my address in a lot of places. One of those places was my cell phone provider, Fido.
First of all, the fields are just in a weird order anyway – it’s generally recommended to keep forms in one column. I suppose that if you go vertically first, they’re in a “normal” order. But if you tab through them, they go horizontally:
It took me way longer than it should have to fill out this form, because I had to enter my info in this order:
- Postal Code
- Street Number
- Contact Number 1
- Street Name
- Contact Number 2
That’s just crazy. Bad dog, Fido.
