Editing the Field Labels in Webforms

When adding individual fields to a webform, you can edit the field's label (the name of the field shown to your contacts when they view the webform). This feature has multiple uses, including changing field labels to support webforms created in different languages (aka internationalization).

Procedure

  1. Go to the Edit Webform page by editing an existing webform or by creating a new webform.
  2. Click the Fields tab in the Content Block section.
    Add Field Content Block
  3. Move your mouse over the Field Content Block you want to add.
    You can use the search box to search for a specific field by name, or use the Select All/ Select None links to select/deselect all of the fields in your account.
  4. Hold down the left click button on your mouse.
  5. Drag the Field Content Block into one of the gray boxes labeled Place content here.

    The Place content here box will appear after you add a Layout block.

    You can see the Type set for the field you are adding by looking at the icon next to the Field's name. The Field type each icon represents is explained below:
    • Field Content Block Check box Icon: check box
    • Field Content Block Text Icon: text
    • Field Content Block Text Area Icon: text area
    • Field Content Block Radio Button Icon: radio button
    • Field Content Block Number And Decimal Icon: number and decimal
    • Field Content Block date Icon: date
    • Field Content Block Currency Icon: currency
    • Field Content Block Pull-Down Menu Icon: pull-down menu
    • Field Content Block Password Icon: password
  6. Move you mouse over the field you just added.
  7. Click Edit Label.
    Add List Content Block
  8. Add in the new label in the text box.

    The label change you make here is unique to this webform and will not appear on other webforms. This does not change the default label. The default label is the label assigned to field when it was created.

    For more information on editing the default field label, see Edit Contact Fields.

    Tip: You can reset the label to the default by clicking Reset Label To Default.
  9. Click Edit Label.
