    Also, is it possible to configure a form field where it builds off the other field. Like say we ask “What’s your name? And then the next field we ask “what is your email, (insert first name)?. Make sense?

    Yes, you can achieve this requirement by copying the "Unique Name" of the first field and adding it to the label of the next field. Please follow the guide below to learn how.

    1. Click the Gear icon on the top right of the name field.

    2. Then on the Properties wizard, select Advanced and click Field Details

    3. Then copy the unique name that is enclosed in braces {}

    4. Paste the unique name including the braces into the email label.
