As you can see you can simply add [‘placeholder “Name”‘] to your form. Done!

Removing the label

By default, the form inputs will be wrapped in a label. You can delete these if you no longer want to use the label name for the inputs of your form.

*TIP: If you are plan on editing the cssĀ to the placeholder text it might be a good idea to leave the label and incorporate it into your design.
