I am trying to apply for a Harpo Foundation grant. The error message says there are erros on the form. How do I know what these errors are?

Do you mean to say that on click of submit button, you get an error message as "There are errors on the form. Please fix them before continuing."
You get this error when you have not input some value in required field. You can also see this error in case the data input by you is not in desired format. You need to simply scroll up and find out the error message being displayed for any field. Please check the screenshot below:
Once the errors of highlighted fields are corrected and then clicking on the submit button will not show you any error. You should be able to submit the form as expected.
Do get back to us if you have any questions.
- caroldiehlAnswered on April 23, 2014 at 09:51 AMThanks, I get that! It would be easy if there were a highlighted field to tell me where the error is, but there is not.

Thanks for the additional informtaion and the clarification.
So, all you need to do is to make sure to not to over pass that limit of characters or words. Then the form will work fine for you.
Let us know if you need further assistance with this query.
- caroldiehlAnswered on April 23, 2014 at 01:11 PMIf you are looking to improve your form, that could be MUCH more clear. Not everyone can guess what 400/200 means. Looks like some kind of code.

Yes - that is a valid observation - the indicator is not as intuitive as it should be.
I have asked our developers to consider the illustration below as afix:
That would be more informative - would you agree?
- caroldiehlAnswered on April 23, 2014 at 03:01 PMThanks for being so responsive! And I would add in addition to "200 words"--"200 word maximum"
Yes. much more informative!
- JotForm SupportTitusNAnswered on April 23, 2014 at 04:27 PM
How about we meet in the middle - 0/200 words used
The 0/200 part is a counter which must be there, such that if you enter 150 words - the counter would read 150/200 Words Used - which is why I would have difficulty using the word "Maximum" - perhaps I missed what you intended to communicate - please correct me if I did.
Alternatively - we could include a countdown number - 50 Words out of 200 to go, or 200 Words to go
- caroldiehlAnswered on April 23, 2014 at 07:21 PMWhat was not clear was that I could not go over 200 words. So however you express that...."200 word max" will do it too.
- JotForm SupportEltonCrisAnswered on April 23, 2014 at 10:12 PM
Maybe adding a word after the counter will help?
0/50 Words Max
Or you can change the word "Words Max" to your preference. To do that, just inject this CSS code to your form.
content: " Words Max";
Hope this workaround helps!
- caroldiehlAnswered on April 23, 2014 at 10:21 PMPerfect! I appreciate your attention to this!
