Tried creating a File Upload Form. Why is it creating a second name and email field? (DB 1.2.1)

Tried creating a File Upload Form. Why is it creating a second name and email field? (DB 1.2.1)

I used the wizard: WebAssist - Forms - Insert New Form. CSS Form Builder opens. I chose "Form Mail w Upload" from Choose YOur Form Fields. From the Preview I can see it already has an extra name field and an email field.

I proceeded to Form Function tab.In the FROM field I clicked the lightning bolt and selected the first e-mail address under FormMailUpload_NewFromBlank_Default. In the TO field, I just entered the client's email address. SUBJECT, I just filled in "Request Quote." I Unchecked the Save Uploaded Files in the lower area.

I haven't heard if the client received a test e-mail, but I'm wondering what the second NAME field and EMAIL 2 fields are about, and whether I've gone about setting up correctly.

I just want visitors to enter their contacts and comments and upload a file to be attached to an email that the client receives.

By Default CSS Form Builder does not have a preset named:
Form Mail w Upload

That must be a preset that you created at some point in the past, and must have added a duplicate name and email field to it.

You can probably remove those fields form the form, but you will also need to edit the server validation server behavior to remove the validation for those fields.

Thanks. And I would edit the resulting e-mail form in Universal Email (as it is in Data Bridge)? Yes?

Yes, you could edit the Universal Email server behavior to make changes to the email settings.
