You can describe the kind of information each field is collecting using either labels or placeholders. Labels are captions appearing outside the text fields while placeholders are example content or hints appearing inside of the text fields.

You can choose to have a description box describing your forms. Pick whether you want the descriptions to appear above or below your form fields.

You can also customize the font size, color, and style of your form descriptions.

Step Six: Submit Button

The last setting to customize your forms is the look of the submit button.

You can use alternative text for the submit button. Common examples are submitted, submit content, pay now, send a message, contact us etc.

You also get to decide how you want the submit button to look like as you can set the alignment and size of the button.
