Step 4: Customize the Form

You will be redirected to the form builder window, where you can customize the form fields. If there are any unwanted fields in the form, you can delete them by selecting and removing them from the builder area.

Next, locate the “Phone” field in the available fields section on the left side of the builder area. Drag and drop the phone field onto the form builder where you want it to appear.

Clicking on the phone field will allow you to configure its settings. Edit the field label to specify that users should enter their phone numbers. You can also make this field mandatory by enabling the required option.

Under the “Advanced” settings, you can further customize the field. Set a default value, add a placeholder text, adjust the field size, and write descriptions to guide users in filling out the form.

You can also customize the validation message to provide feedback to users if they enter an invalid phone number.
