    My form can be located here? http://cogoed.com/ ... 

    It appears I'm getting submissions w/out people populating anything in the form. This is very strange as I have an email validation for the email field. 

     

    I updated the rest of the form recently to ensure a validation occurs throughout all the fields in the form save the grade level field. 

     

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    To make a field required but not have the red asterisk, first make the field required, and then add this CSS to you custom CSS injection:

    .form-required {

    display: none !important;

    }

    Our validation does not work the same way as our requirements.  The validation merely checks to see if what was entered is what was expected.  If nothing is entered, there is nothing to validate so the form will allow submission.  If you make the field required however, it will not allow submission without the field being filled in.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you for using Jotform!
