The Validation Settings of your Forms & Pages activity is only available if you've chosen to create a Form.

Adjust the colour of the missed field by clicking the circle next to colour to open the colour picker.
Missed field message
Under Message, enter the text you wish to display under the input field if the visitor doesn't fill it out before submitting your form.
Note that this error message will only come up if you set it up as required, or in the event of the confirmation field not matching the original.
Wrong format message
Under Message, enter the text you wish to display under the input field if the visitor enters information that doesn't match the format of your input field.
Preview error messages
Toggle Preview error messages to see in the Forms Editor how it looks like when visitors don't fill out your form correctly.
To test it, simply click on the Input Field Element and recreate what an incorrect response would be directly in the editor, like letters in a number type for example.
Note that the error message and styling will only come up if you set up the input field as required, or in the event of the confirmation field not matching the original.
Capture data automatically and enrich your Profiles with Forms Hidden Values.
Configured in the Settings of the Form Editor, hidden values allows you to populate the Profiles from visitors who fill in your Form with Attributes, Tags, or Events.
Use the Hidden Values setting to automatically capture data from Profiles, depending on which Form they fill in. The values will be the same for each visitor that completes the Form, and allows for greater insights, a deeper understanding of your Audience, and the opportunity for more personalised communications in future marketing campaigns!
There are three types of hidden values:
Profile Attribute: Set the value of an Attribute for all visitors who complete your form.
For example, this is useful if your campaigns are targeted in certain countries: set the Country Attribute value to Sweden for your Form for Swedish visitors. Each visitor who fills in the Form will have a Country Attribute with Sweden as a value!
Profile Tags: Use a Profile Tag to differentiate those who opt-in via your Form.
Event Property: Add a custom field in the Event data of the Form - Submit Event. Use this to further personalise the way you collect and act upon Event data.
You can add more details to the Event data and later target Profiles with Segmentation, without adding any unnecessary Attributes or Tags to Profiles.
For example, this might come in handy when testing which Form performs better, or during a seasonal offer. Read more about Forms & Pages Events...
