Why use this pattern
Use a back link to help users go back to the previous page in a multi-page transaction.
When to use a back link
Always include a back link in multi-page transactional services.
Place a back link under the primary and secondary buttons on a page.
When not to use a back link
Never use a back link together with breadcrumbs. If necessary, you should do research with your users to learn which they find more helpful in your service.
How it works
Make sure the link takes users to the previous page they were on, in the state they last saw it.
