    How to add hint text value to quick fields on my form?

    Asked by chanellno1 on December 31, 2014 at 12:29 PM


    Can you please tell me how I would go about doing the above with the new system? I  no longer see the above options when I am editing my form and I do not see where to do this in the designer. Here is a link to my form: http://form.jotform.us/form/43635525114147

    Ideally, the fields 'firt name', 'last name', 'area code', and 'phone number' would appear like all of the other fields on my form. Is there anyway to do that so the design is consistent?

    Please advise,

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, this hint value option is not available when using quick tools in the form. However, you can use normal text fields to capture this information like in this form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43646053543959 and provide the hint texts like you did for the other fields.

    Please check it out and let us know if it works for you.
