About the Default Contact Profile Form
The default contact profile form will contain the standard X-CD fields. You will be able to identify these types of fields as there will be a specific label underneath the field in the field grid view. Refer to below screen shot of examples. Do Not delete the standard X-CD fields. You may set the field to hidden if you do not wish to use the field. Fields that you create on your default contact profile form will begin with CustomField. The fields on the default contact profile form are shared across all modules. Within each module, using the Contact Profile screen, you may customize the display of each of these fields and set them as required. The settings in the module contact profile form will override the attributes set on the default contact profile form when the user accesses the module using the front-end landing page url.
