Navigate to the Form Fields Manager. To add a new Form Field, press the "New" icon in the toolbar. To edit an existing Form Field, click on the Form Field's Name or click the Form Field's checkbox and then click on the "Edit" icon in the toolbar.
This is where you can add a Form Field or edit an existing one. Contact Enhanced allows you to list Form Fields on your web site's contact forms. Contact Enhaced has the ability to allow you (site administrator) to assign custom fields to a contact category. Therefore you have to create a category before you create a custom field. Your users will be able to fill that custom field when they submit the form.
Name or Title for the custom field. This is the text that will be shown in the front-end as the field label;
HTML Output: <label for="cf_field_id">Field name</label>
For certain Field Types (Select list, Radio, Checkbox, Free Text, Number, Number Range) you have to setup the available options separated by pipe | . For example, on our support contact page you have to fill which browsers you have tested, in order to do that we selected the checkbox field type and typed the following content in the value box: Firefox|Internet Explorer|Opera|Google Chrome|Safari|Other. See table above for more examples.
Add a tooltip to be shown when the mouse is over the field's label (frontend).
