    Hi, I just set up the first of two forms for my website, very quickly which is great. However, hitting the submit button sends the form regardless of whether fields are filled out or not. How can i include validation so that fiels have to be completed? In any screenshots or tutorials i've seen, there appears to be a 'required' field icon at the top of the form builder but i can't see it on mine anywhere..

    Also, is it possible to have the form submission message/ success message displayed on the page? (instead of bringing up a new blank screen with a message on it).

    The actual site i'm setting this up on isn't live yet so i can't send a link to it..

    Hi Justin,

    Thank you for checking out JotForm. I would highly recommend though that you at least signed up for the Basic FREE plan to officialy Register an account since you already deployed forms in your web site. You may check the features on this Pricing page.

    With the Free account we can provide you support much better. Using only guest account may cause potential problems on your end on the long run because of the limitations of forms/submissions/data being saved in JotForm server.

    Thanks.

    Justin,

    Additionally, when you register for an account, the forms you created in your initial guest account will already be included in the official registered account.

    Thanks.
