An Email Field is used for your users to enter a valid email address when filling out a form. The "Email" field properties may be set once the field is clicked on.
Field Label: This property is the text placed next to the form field that describes the type of data you want visitors to input.
Options: Set the field to be "Required", “Masked” or “No Duplicates” by clicking the checkbox accordingly.
- Required: Checking this option will force the user to fill out this field. An error message will be displayed if this field is left blank.
- Masked Field: Replaces the field data with asterisks (*) in the submission email. This data will still be viewable in the Data Manager.
- No Duplicates: Checking this will make sure the data entered into this field is unique and has not been submitted before.
Show Field to: Set the field to be “Everyone” or "Admin Only" by selecting that radio button.
Cell Align: You can select the field to be left, center, or right aligned by selecting from the “Cell Align” drop-down.
Field Size: This property sets the visual size of the field in your form. It does not determine the amount of data that can be collected by the field. Example: 80 for absolute size, 100% for relative to form width.
Confirm Email: Checking this will add an additional email field and both fields must match in order to validate. In the text field, you can edit the label of this email confirmation field (Default label: Confirm).
Default Value: By setting this value, the field will be pre-populated with the text you enter.
Instructions for User: This is an optional property that displays the text specified to your users while they’re filling out that particular field. These instructions appear below the field input box.
Field ID: This property is a unique value assigned to a specific field. It can be used in conjunction with dynamic tokens to insert entry data to customize the AutoResponder confirmation message. Note: This value is assigned after a form has been saved.
Once you set the field options, please do not forget to click "Save Form" to save your work.
