We've now added the ability to make your Form fields optional. When a form field is marked as optional, a user will not have to provide a response to that field when submitting the form. 

Our biggest challenge when implementing this was creating an intuitive user experience while you're creating the form. We mark form fields as optional in the Form creator so that you don't have to provide a response to every field while you're creating the Form. 

When a form field is optional in the Form creator, it will be have a (*) next to it's title.
