    Hi Michelle,

    Yes it is possible to make any of the fields on your form required before the form can be submitted.

    To do this you would select the field that you would like to have required. Once the field is selected, you will see a different menu at the top of the form builder.

    The "required" option would be included in that menu, you would click on it to make the field required. You would click on it again if you would like to remove the required attribute.

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