    You know that box with the ! that says "This is a required field"... is there any way that I can change its positioning to the top or the left? Thanks!

    Hi mel612,

    That's possible with CSS Injection. How to Inject Custom CSS Codes to your Form. You can use the following if you'd like to position it on top.

    .form-error-message {

    top: -100px !important;

    width: 140px;


    .form-error-arrow {

    top: 26px;

    left: 120px;


    -ms-transform:rotate(180deg); /* IE 9 */

    -moz-transform:rotate(180deg); /* Firefox */

    -webkit-transform:rotate(180deg); /* Safari and Chrome */

    -o-transform:rotate(180deg); /* Opera */



    Let us know if you want further changes. Thank you!
