Add additional settings to the field or delete it by clicking “Options”. (Change styling will give you different types of ways to display the field. Copy field duplicates an entire field. “Hide field from users” will hide the field on the front end of the system. All admin will still be able to view hidden fields). As mentioned above, the phone field allows you two settings: The first is “1 field” which displays the field as one text entry bar. The second is “3 fields” which displays the field as 3 separate text entries.
