Edit and refine your form
Once you create your basic form, you will probably want to rearrange, edit, or add fields to make it easy to use and fill out. If you're not already on the form, navigate to it by opening formbuilder.stanford.edu. Click the name of the form you want to edit. The form will open in Edit view and a preview of the form will display to the right of the Build tab.
- To add a field, click a field type. Form Builder automatically adds the field to the bottom of the form and opens the Edit tab so that you can name the field and set its properties. Click Save Field Properties.
- To edit a field, hover your cursor over the field in the form preview and click Edit. Alternatively, click on the field in the preview view.
- To delete a field, hover your cursor over the field in the form preview and click Edit. The field's edit form will load. At the bottom, click Delete Field. You will need to confirm the delete. Please note that any data saved in that field will be deleted as well and cannot be undone.
- To move a field higher or lower in the form, hover your cursor over the field in the form preview and click and drag it to the desired location; click Save Changes to Field Order to save the new form layout. Alternatively, you can edit the location by changing the numbers next to the fields and then saving.
