    Hi, I just tried your form (in Chrome, Firefox, IE), and the warnings appear when not filling out the required fields of your form:

    Could you tell us if this is happening on mobile views? or on a specific browser? Let us know if the issue persist.

They didnt know that they need to scolling up, they keep click the send button and they keep thinking the button dont work!! Only we want is when click the send button - wee pop up warning, need to fill in required above is missing etc. Sorry my english grammar is poor due I am deaf, thank you.

    Unfortunately, required field warning messages can't be a popup window in our form builder. You may want to consider changing the Warning Message at the bottom of the form? This message:

    You can change the message to something that would say: "There are fields that are required above, please fill it before sending the form". Change it by following this guide: How-to-Change-Translate-Form-Warnings

    Thanks
