The element’s caption is basically its name. The elements’ captions play a significant role in the form’s functionality since they appear in the data management result table and emails and without them it is sometimes impossible to distinguish between the fields.
When you drag an element for the first time it has a default general name such as: “Checkbox” for all checkboxes or “Radio” for all radio buttons. If these default captions are not changed than when someone fills in your form you will not be able to tell one checkbox apart from another and truly understand the data collected.
Following are steps to change the element caption:
1. Drag an input element on to the design area and make it is selected (has a red border) .
2. Go to its ‘element settings’ on the right.
3. Change the caption text (the caption text is usually the same text as the label attached to the element).
4. Press “apply” and continues to change the other elements’ captions.
5. Save the form.

Sometimes when you manage your data entries in the data management tool of the form builder you want to add a little private note to some data entries.
These little notes are many times added to the entry as a flag to a certain things (for instance you can flag the entry as ‘not available’ by adding this text to the ‘remarks’) and later on this may be used to filter the data (and search for all the enries which are ‘not available’).
Following are steps to add a remark to your data entries:
1- Enter your form’s data.
2- Place your cursor on the entry row that you want to attach a remark to.
3- Press on the ‘>’ sign located in the tools column and the ‘tools’ sub menu will open.
4- Select the ‘remark’ option.
5- A window will appear and you will need to write you remark and save it.
