Help text

Help text appears below a form field label and is typically used to provide information about what should be provided in the field.

Helpful Tip: if you'd like to add text in between the form's last field and the submit button:

  • Insert a field at the very bottom of the form.
  • Add a Rich text separator directly above this newly added property and add text to the separator.
  • Click the pencil icon on the newly added field and select Make field hidden. 
  • Click Done Editing, then Save form

With these methods, you can add text to your HubSpot form to make it more engaging and easier for your visitors to complete.
