Hi, I'd like to know if its possible to have the form field titles show inside the fields themselves until your start typing as shown in the picture below. And if possible, can someone show me how i can do it. Thank you!

I think we can achieve it with some Js code to set placeholder for input element

im not very versed with Js so if you dont mind, can you help me figure it out please? 

You can try the following code in Home > Settings > Advanced > Code Injection, choose the footer

<script>
  (function() {
    window.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', () => {
      const placeholders = document.querySelectorAll('.field');
      if(placeholders.length) {
        placeholders.forEach(holder => {
          const inputEl = holder.querySelector('input, textarea.field-element');
          const labelEl = holder.querySelector('.caption-text, .title').innerText;
          if(inputEl && labelEl) {
            inputEl.setAttribute('placeholder', labelEl);
          }
        })
      }
    });
  })()
</script>

Let me know how it works on your site
