Click on the ‘edit’ button within the particular form element. Depending on the element type, this will display different options:

Text (single line text entry):

  • Label – This is the label that will be displayed with the form element.
  • Placeholder – This will appear within the text field as a placeholder until the user inputs something.
  • Width (in pixels) – The width of the text field when displaying the form, in pixels.
  • Max characters – The maximum number of characters allowed as input.
  • Required – Check this if you want the element to be required. Required fields are displayed with a red asterisk (*) next to the label, and will not allow the user to submit data until something has been entered / selected for that element.
  • Validation – This will require the user to input a particular type of input, such as an e-mail address or a phone number. NOTE: This is not the same as checking ‘Required’; Validation will allow blank inputs. If you want the input to be required and validated, you must also check ‘Required’.

Text Area (multi-line text entry):

  • Label – This is the label that will be displayed with the form element.
  • Default Value – For text inputs, this is the default text when the form is first loaded.
  • Width / Height (in pixels) – The width and height of the textarea when displaying the form, in pixels.
  • Required – Check this if you want the element to be required. Required fields are displayed with a red asterisk (*) next to the label, and will not allow the user to submit data until something has been entered / selected for that element.

Checkbox:

  • Label – This is the label that will be displayed with the form element.
  • Position – This will place the checkbox towards the left/right of the display area.
  • Checked by Default – Whether or not the checkbox is checked by default when first displaying the form.

List:

  • Label – This is the label that will be displayed with the form element.
  • Style – Lists can be displayed as a dropdown menu, a list of ‘option’ buttons, a list box, or a set of checkboxes. Note that for the ‘checkbox list’ type, multiple selections are allowed.

  • List Items – To add new items to the list, click ‘Add’. To rearrange the options, click & drag the ‘move’ button next to the option. To delete an option, click the ‘delete’ button next to the option.  Alternatively, you may click ‘Enter Items as Text’, and enter a comma separated list of options.  If for some reason you want a comma to be a part of your option, type ‘\,’ (backslash comma) where you would like a comma to appear.
