How do I make a form field required?

Last updated: April 3, 2018

You can set fields to be required on your HubSpot forms so that visitors must fill out the field in order to submit the form. To do so:


  • Navigate to your forms:
    • In your HubSpot Marketing Hub BasicProfessional, or Enterprise account, navigate to Contacts > Forms.
    • In your HubSpot CRM or Marketing Hub Starter account, navigate to Lead Capture Forms
  • Click the name of your form.
  • Hover over the field you'd like to make required, then click Edit.
  • In the pane on the left, scroll down and check the Make this field required box.
  • Click Save at the upper right to save your changes in the form editor, and Publish to take them live on the form.

The field will now appear with a red asterisk next to it. If a visitor does not fill out the field, an alert will appear beneath it when they try to submit the form.
