The French version apparently does not show the red alert message when the user does not fill in a field as required. Has anyone noticed this and/or have a solution?

The validation message for required fields should be appearing just fine in Cognito Forms for all supported languages. For example, here is a new French form with a required field showing what happens when clicking Submit:

If you are have a problem with a specific form, please submit a support request and we will be glad to help!

  • Hi Jamie This is exactly the kind of message that does not appear with my french forms. It works well in Dutch but when i copy the Dutch form to create a french version (and switch to this language), the error messages doest not appear anymore. Commented Dec 1, 2015 at 14:09
  • After follow-up with @FrançoisLambert, we determined that a French translation was missing for a specific text length validation condition and are fixing it! Commented Dec 1, 2015 at 15:56
