2-13

6. Next, you will have the opportunity to name your form, and decide if you would like to start with an empty form or a template. We named our form "Example #1", and chose a blank form. 

3-6

7. Now we can start building! Lets start with a text box. On the right of the screen, you will see a field labeled "Short Answer". Drag and drop the "Short Answer" field to the right side of the screen where it says "This is your blank form." Your page should now look something like this-

4-4

8. Once you have done so, click on your "Short Answer" field on the right side of the screen. This will allow you to edit the field. For now just change the name to "Carrier Name". Once you have finished editing, click "Close" on the left side of the screen. 

5-4

9. Now let's add another field. Drag and drop the "Number" box on the left side to where the "Carrier Name" field is. Click on the "Number" field now that it is on the right side of the screen. Change the name to "Premium Annual". If you move your mouse cursor to the left side of the screen where it says "Label", and then scroll down, more options will appear. As you do so you will notice where it says "decimal places". Change this number from "0" to "2". Once these changes have been made, click "Close" on the left side of the screen.

As a closing thought, I want to remind you that the spelling and capitalization of field names is very important. If they are spelled correctly, the fields in your form will be pre-filled when you click on your action. Otherwise, it will not work. That's the end of our guide. Thank you for following along!
