You can customise the Form by accessing the options under the tabs in right sidebar - see Customising Forms.
If you wish to start-over and reset all settings to defaults, click on the ‘Reset defaults’ link - any custom changes you have made will be lost.
Click the Save Changes button in the bottom right to save your changes when done.
Finally, click the Close button once you’re done editing.
