    My form is relatively small and I dont want the forms dimensions blown out of someone doesnt fill in a field.  However, I really would like to have them as requirements.  Are there options?

    Hi,

    Please try also adding this CSS code on the current codes in your form.

    .form-error-message{display:none;}

    Test/check if this is enough to work on your form. You have to make a filed a required to trigger the error.

    Inform us if you have further inquiry.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    You can also use the Conditional Logic feature of the form to force the form user to fill up all the fields before they can actually submit the form. Make sure that validation for fields are also set i.e. the email box should be an email address. You can see this in the field properties on top.

    This would also help with spam, too, correct?  We seem to be getting some blank submissions from time to time.

    Yes, that's correct. With regards to the blank subsmissions, is that all the fields or just some fields were submitted and left blank? Can you try the iframe method of embedding your form to see if that helps?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Puliz,

    I've cloned also your form and made some workaround on it. Please take a look at this form:

    If you like what I did, feel free to clone the form.
