The following settings can be edited for the Custom Lead Capture Field:

The Name field is the name you want to give the custom field. The Name will only be used on this page to identify the custom field and also in your Lead Capture Export file as the heading of this column of data. The Name field is not shown to your participants on the Participant View sign-in page.
The Input Type is the type of custom lead field. This setting defines both the type and style of the custom lead field you want to add (see the below examples).
The available options are:

The Label field is an optional label that can be shown above your custom lead field on the Participant View sign-in page that can give additional context and instruction to your custom lead field. For example, "Enter your favorite streaming service below."

The Placeholder field is an optional example value that can be shown in your custom lead field. For example, E.g. Netflix. For Checkbox or Opt-In fields, the placeholder is the message shown next to the check box (see below examples).

Requiring a Custom Lead Capture Field
Just like the common Fields For All Plans lead capture fields, custom lead capture fields can be set as either Optional or Required. If Required, the field must be completed or the participant will not be allowed to pass the sign-in page and join the Experience. If the field is not required, then completing the field by the participant is optional.
Simply check or uncheck the Required checkbox next to each custom field to set it to be required.
The Checkbox or Opt-In field above is Required. The custom lead field must be checked to join the Experience.
