Why Your Form Buttons Should Never Say Submit

by Tom Kenny (@tkenny)

A great piece on improving the language of form buttons.

When users fill out a form, they are engag ing in a task. The action but ton should affirm what that task is, so that users know exactly what hap pens when they click that but ton. A but ton that describes the user’s task tells users that the form focuses on car ry ing out that spe cific task. The more focused your form is, the more likely you’ll get users to com plete your form.
