The first step in editing any piece of content is by clicking on the blue Edit button shown below:
You will then be presented with this menu, in which you can further edit the form's style and functionality:
However, new and old form fields are edited within the form selector itself.
Editing Form Fields:
There are 3 primary form field editing options:
- Edit the properties of an existing form field;
- Delete the form field;
- Rearrange the position of a form by clicking and dragging.
Each different type of form field has its own properties.
- Text fields can have email validation enabled, which means that they will not allow the visitor to submit the form if that field does not have input in the form of firstname.lastname@example.org. This is checked by default for fields containing the word "email", but you can check it or uncheck it for any text field.
- Label: Description of the information you'd like to collect from your visitors;
- Required: A visitor will not be able to submit the form if they leave a required field empty;
- Drop-down, checkbox, radio button selections: These type of form fields typically require a few pre-defined options for the visitor to select from.
Adding New Form Fields:
You can add new form fields at any time by clicking on the Add New button. Doing so will present you with 8 field type options.
- Text Field
- Radio Button
- Drop Down
- Text Area
