    How do I get note - *indicates a required field - to show up?

    Asked by cbf on March 14, 2012 at 03:59 PM

    Is there a property or option I need to turn on to get the text "*indicates a required field" to show up on my form?

    Hi, Sure ! You must do a right click on field you want to be required and select "Required" :)

    Hope it helps.

    I got the fields themselves marked as required. But I'm not getting any copy the user can see that says "* indicates a required field." Usually that would appear near the top of the form, before the first question.

    I am sorry to inform you, but we do not have such option.

    However, you can add either Free Text (HTML) or Heading with the "* indicates a required field." text.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
