Why Your Form Buttons Should Never Say Submit – UX Movement

In may cases Submit buttons are “calls to action”. You’re asking a visitor/user to do something.

Instead of the default “Submit”, consider what’s actually happening from your user’s perspective. Is there a better way to word that button?

When users fill out a form, they are engag­ing in a task. The action but­ton should affirm what that task is, so that users know exactly what hap­pens when they click that but­ton. A but­ton that describes the user’s task tells users that the form focuses on car­ry­ing out that spe­cific task. The more focused your form is, the more likely you’ll get users to com­plete your form.
