    How can I make a warning message (This field is required) pop up after the user clicks Submit?

    Asked by medtripadvice on January 30, 2017 at 07:41 AM

    Hi! I would like the warming message "This field is required" to be shown after the user clicks Submit. This is because people tend to fill in the forms in random order and I wouldn't like to bother them with unnecessary warning messages before they are done filling in the form.

    You can change the warning messages etc from Setup&Embed>Preferences. 

    However, you cannot disable or change the style/type of the warning messages. Unfortunatey, there is no such an option in JotForm. 

    Please have a look at the following guide about how to change change warning messages:

    Thank you.
