    How can I make my form fields 'Required/Mandatory'?

    Asked by smartsys on January 04, 2013 at 08:44 PM

    Hi:

     

    How can I make my form fields 'Required/Mandatory'? I read thru the FAQ & User Guide. Could not find any info...maybe I missed it somewhere.

     

    Can you point me in the right direction.

     

    Thanks

    Hello Ken.  For every form element that you add in the form you're working on, simply select that element to highlight so that the options on top will have appear.  One of those options that will be available is the "Required" option, clicking it will enable/disable the feature.

    Here is one example screenshot of the E-mail field that had been selected with the options on top

    Another way is to click the properties icon (the gear icon on the form element), once you have clicked the icon, a window will appear and all possible options available for the field will be available for you to modify.

    If you have further questions or concerns, please do let us know.

    Thanks.

    now that we have the management module, maybe if you can add an option in there via mouse right click to allow easy and fast bulk edits for many fields that need this? just a suggestion. maybe even you guys can come up with a hotkey for it to skip the whole right click - drag down, click process on a form that has hundreds of fields...

    Hi,

    If you Right-Click on the form during design process in the form builder, you can manage multiple fields and duplicate them all at once.

    The Field Manager Wizard will then allow you to duplicate mandatory fields.

     

    Hope this help. Should you have further suggestion/inquiry, may I suggest you create your own separate thread about it.
    Please use this link to easily do that https://www.jotform.com/contact

    Thanks.
