This articles explains the form field status in PlatoForms. You can adjust field status according to your specific requirements, shaping the form to your needs.

What is field status?

Field status refers to the condition or state of a form field within an online form. It indicates whether a field is required (must be filled out by the user), disabled (visible but cannot be interacted with), or hidden (not visible to the user). The field status determines how users can interact with and provide input for specific fields in a form.

  • Required:
    By marking a field as “Required”, you ensure that an asterisk (*) is displayed next to the field label on the form interface, indicating that it is a mandatory field. Users will be unable to submit the form until all required fields are completed.

  • Disabled:
    When a field is set as “Disabled,” users will be able to see the field on the form interface but won’t be able to input any data. This can be useful in situations where you want to prevent user input for specific fields under certain conditions.

  • Hidden:
    Selecting the “Hidden” option will make the field invisible to users on the form interface. This is particularly useful for fields that require backend processing without direct user interaction.

For the page break field, you have the option to set them as “Disabled” or “Hidden”. “Disabled” will retain the page break’s position, but users won’t be able to click on it for page separation. The “Hidden” option makes the page break invisible to users, meaning they won’t be able to see it on the form.
