    Hi shineinternet,

    Yes you can add (Required) next to the asterisk on your form. This can be achieved by injecting CSS code to your form.

    How to Inject CSS code

    Please inject the following CSS code to your form:



    font-size: 8px;

    content: "(Required)";


    I hope this helps! Please inform us if you need further assistance.
