A Christmas Gift: Sub labels for everyone

December 25, 2010

Ho Ho Ho!

This might be a very busy time for Santa Claus but he didn't forget JotForm users.
We woke up today with a new feature on JotForm.
Thank you Santa! Many users have been asking for it.
We can all now add sub labels below our form questions.
Happy Holidays to All!

This was a great feature. I'm a fairly new user but just so very impressed with everything about this site.

Amazing! Can we customise the appearance on our websites?

aytekin (December 28, 2010 at 01:39 AM)

leecassingham: You can change the appearance using "Inject Custom CSS" feature or you can just copy the full form source code to your site and change it as you wish.

Here is how you can get full form source code. Open your form on the Form Builder:
1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,
2. Click on "Share Form"
3. Click on "Advanced Options"
4. Click on "Full Source Code".

Can this label include HTML or must be plain text?

Thnx ;)

aytekin (December 28, 2010 at 05:59 AM)

Plain text only. It cannot include HTML.

Ne Changez rien, peut être la possibilité de faire des tests d'envois sana que ce soit décompté du potentiel mensuel.

I absolutely love jotform.
I've already recommended it and am about to upgrade my account.
By far the best form builder.
thanks jotform.

Santa is good to us this year!!!!
Merry Christmas
This feature is awesome!!!

RobeD4love (December 29, 2010 at 01:10 PM)

Not sure i understand the purpose of a sub label, especially from the example. You've already created a form and ask others for information, now you want them to enter their names AGAIN? TWICE? lol

smartmove (December 29, 2010 at 02:01 PM)

Great, but where/how do I add 'em now! Thanks

aytekin (December 29, 2010 at 11:49 PM)

RobeD4love: Sorry, our example was terrible. A better example would be an upload field. Let's say you would like them to upload their logo. You can have a sub-label saying something like "Logo should be 100x50 pixels and must be smaller than 100KBs".

aytekin (December 30, 2010 at 07:42 AM)

smartmove: Select a field on the form builder, and then click on "Sub Label" button on the toolbar. If you look at the screenshot above carefully you will understand what I mean.

LorraineEsposito (December 30, 2010 at 12:56 PM)

I am so impressed by your creative and generous minds. Thank you for all that you've given to me. I'm soon approaching the time when I'll be so busy that I'll need to upgrade my account! It's one upgrade I'll feel happy to pay for!

Happy New Year!

Great idea guys and just finished my first form. A very long Employment app for a client. This made it seriously fast and easy. Great product!
