How to Customize the Text on a Submit Button

In this article, we will share the steps for customizing the text on a submit button within a form view.

Use Case

In order to guide your users effectively in your apps, a few lines of text can work wonders. When it comes to forms, modifying the text on the submit button can make a significant impact on the completion of information from your users.

Without this change, you may frequently receive incomplete data.

For instance, in a Job Portal app, it might be beneficial to replace the existing "Submit" text on the submit button with something that clearly indicates that they are about to officially submit the application.
