    How do I create mandatory fields in my form?

    Asked by jneighbor on February 16, 2014 at 09:37 PM

    I need to require certain mandatory fields in my summer camp registration form. It looks like currently a user can fill out the form partially and still submit the form. How do I require that all important fields are filled before submission is accepted?

    Hello jneighbor,

    Upon checking your form, I found that you have not set any form fields to be mandatory fields. Your form can be submitted without any input. Please check the screenshot below:

    To make any form field as required field, you need to just select the form field and then click on the "Required" button form the form toolbar. Please check the screenshot below:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
