Text entered in this box will appear in the element’s text field as long as there is no value saved in the field. If the form is submitted without entering a value, the Placeholder text will not be saved with the response. For this reason, it is safe to enter examples or instructions in the Placeholder box, such as ‘mm-dd-yyyy’ or ‘(###) ###-####’.

The placeholder information will disappear when the user enters the element to type in a value.
