  2. In the Submissions page, under the Submssions tab, click Edit Display Fields.


  3. In the Displayable and Searchable Field window, check the field display names as needed.

Display name status

Setting field display names as “Displayable” or “Searchable” serves different purposes on the Submission page:

  • Displayable
    Display names are visible on the Submission page, helping you recognize data types in each field (e.g., “Name,” “Email,” “Phone Number”).

  • Searchable
    Searchable display names make it easy for you to find specific submissions. For example, if you want to see all submissions from a particular city, you can enter the display name associated with the city field in the search box. This makes it simpler to organize and locate the data you need.
