SharePoint Formfield set Placeholder attribute

While using SharePoint Designer I haven’t found it possible to set the placeholder values, therefore a workaround for this is to use JQuery.

To do this, go to and get the latest CDN

Then copy the script below, modifying the relevant sections

<script type=”text/javascript” src=””></script>

$(“input[Title=’COLUMN NAME’]”).attr(‘placeholder’, “PLACEHOLDER FOR YOUR COLUMN NAME”);
