    Unfortunately this option is not available, forms created with jotform are formatted using tags and css. The warning text is also triggered when user hits the submit button. What I can think of as a suggestion is to remove the warning message on the form fields with the use of Inject Custom CSS:

    1. While  on  your form (Edit Mode), click Setup & Embed then  Preferences
    2. On the Preferences window, goto Form Styles tab and then insert your CSS Code under Inject Custom CSS Box, add the following code:

    .form-error-message {

    display: none !important;

    When user hits the submit button and a required field is left empty the warning message is displayed just once and not for every field. The required empty fields are highlighed.

    Hope you find this information useful.
