Do you avoid having "Reset" buttons on webforms?
  v10.0 Posted at 14/11/2017 3:59 AM by Tiago Araujo

​Why do web pages have "Reset" buttons? I have been entering forms on the web for more years than I care to remember, but have never needed to click this button. The worst thing is I have accidentally hit it a few times after - I have a habit of doing 3 things at once - it happens just after I have finished entering everything and click the first button.

More detailed information about this rule can be found in this article http://www.nngroup.com/articles/reset-and-cancel-buttons/

Figure: The "Reset"​​​ button isn't useful at all
