    Placeholder (Hint Example) for Full Name field

    Asked by marcomm on November 06, 2014 at 05:30 PM

    I really need the hint example (placeholder) function for "full name".  Can you please add that?

    It seems that it is not possible currently with the built-in properties of Full name field. However, you can use separate text boxes for First name and Last name to have placeholders.

    Alternatively, you can embed the JotForm using source code so that you can edit the tags to add placeholders for these fields.


     I am also sending this as a feature request to our next level support team to see if this can be implemented. I cannot provide you an ETA at the moment. However, if there is any progress you'll be updated through this thread.

    Thank you!

    Those are both great suggestions but neither work for my specific situation (embedding in a cms and integrating with salesforce).  This seems like a very simple thing to add.  Please try!


    Thanks so much!

    You are welcome. As my colleague have mentioned, this has been escalated as a feature request. You will receive a notification when an update has been made.

    Meanwhile, we will try to explore new workarounds for this, I have something in mind but I will need to construct it first completely for me to suggest it. I will post it here if it worked for me.

    Thank you.
