a grey box will appear, then click on the arrow to open it.

Firstly, we insert the "name" field; it' s important you compile the Data Name field to use its value inside the email body.

So we compile the Message error field, check the Required field, choose the Icon that will appear inside the input field and assign six columns value to Width.

Now we can insert the "email" field: we have to compile the same fields as we did before, but we also have to check the "Email" field as showed below.

In this way, users will receive an error message if the email is not in the correct form.

Now we are going to add the "website" field: in this case, we don't want the field to be required, but we want that the input field will be wide as its container, so we set the "Width" field to twelve columns.

23

We add the last custom field for "message", in this case we will set the "Type Field" to "Textarea".
