To customize Name subfields, keep in mind that:

  • The Title subfield is a dropdown list with the options Ms, Miss, Mrs, Mr set as default when enabled. You can edit the choices in the Title Available Choices box.
  • You cannot set a default value for Title
  • The Initials subfield cannot exceed 5 characters in length.

In Submissions, a new column will appear for each subfield when enabled in the Form Editor.

To change the placeholder texts inside the fields ( Title, First, Initials, Last, Middle) go to Translations and add your own text.
