It would be great to have a progress bar

It would be really nice to have a built in progress bar so people could see how much of a survey they have left

    Progress bars are shown to decrease response rates in survey research so it may not be the wisest idea.

    Plus they prove difficult if branching results in an individual receiving fewer or greater questions.

    I am developing a longer form that incorporates branching. At first glance the user will not know how long the form will take to complete unless I put an estimation in the description. It would be helpful for there to be a progress bar or percentage for these kinds of forms.

    Ability to break down each section in to tabs, with a percentage of overall completion based on the number of questions.

    For longer forms and surveys provide a way to progress bar so the user can see how much of the form is left to complete.

    When creating a survey, the questions seem to go on and on because branching doesn't show all the questions. I think a "progress meter" would help.
