How To Use The Textarea Field Element

The Textarea Field Element allows you to place a Text area into your forms for people to write a message. To start, just add the element into your desired column in a Form Layout.

This Element is much the same as the Text Field Element, with one major difference. Here you can configure a Textarea Row Value, making the text area as big as you like. Otherwise, configure this Element much as you would a Text Field Element.
