    • Required
      A required field will prevent the form from being submitted if it is not filled out or selected.
    • No Duplicates
      A field set to allow no duplicates will require that a value entered in a field does not currently exist in the entry database for that field.

  • Admin Field Label
    Enter the admin label of the form field. Entering a value in this field will override the Field Label when displayed in the Gravity Forms administration tool.

  • Default Value
    If you would like to pre-populate the value of a field, you can specify a static value or select a variable value from the predefined list.

  • Validation Message
    If you would like to override the default error validation for a field, enter it here. This message will be displayed if there is an error with this field when the user submits the form.

  • Visibility
    Select the visibility for this field. Field visibility set to Everyone will be visible by the user submitting the form. Form field visibility set to Admin Only will only be visible within the Gravity Forms administration tool. Setting a field to Admin Only is useful for creating fields that can be used to set a status or priority level on submitted entries.

  • Allow field to be populated dynamically
    Check this option to enable data to be passed to the form and pre-populate this field dynamically. Data can be passed via Query Strings, Shortcode and/or Hooks.

  • Enable Conditional Logic
    Create rules to dynamically display or hide this field based on values from another field. Remember, to use conditional logic, you will need to create a drop down, checkbox or multiple choice field.

Merge Tags

Usage

{Field Name:2}

Notes:

  • The first of these merge tag parameters is optional and is simply the field name for easier identification.
  • The second parameter defines the field ID within the form. In the example above, it would be field ID 2.
