If you want to add a field to your online form that asks for the user to fill in some kind of Text, your best bet is to add an Input Field.

1. Select your form

To add an Input Field to a form you need to login to MightyForms App, then:

Select an existing form from your dashboard
Create a new form from scratch
Select one of the Templates
or Transfer an existing Form

2. Drag & Drop the Input Field

You’ll find the Input Field in the builder’s Element toolbox. You can click on the + sign to simply add it to the bottom of your form. Or you can select, drag & drop the field anywhere you like in your form.

3. Edit Input Field

Make sure the Input Field you’ve added to your form is selected so that its unique Settings options show on the right corner of your Builder's dashboard.

Here you can edit:

Status: Choose if you want this field to accept a user submission, only be visible to users or be invisible to users.
Label: Describe the information you need from your user (name, street address, job position, etc).
Placeholder: Some text that shows on your field until your user fills it in.
Default Value: The text that will show on your field by default
