Note: This help article refers to building forms using our original form builder. If you joined Submittable after January 7, 2020, your organization is using our new form building engine, which does not use the cover letter field in the form builder.

The cover letter form field enables submitters to easily include a cover letter.
Submitters may develop a cover letter to save in their profile. Whenever a form includes a cover letter field, the submitter's saved profile cover letter will automatically populate the field. Alternatively, cover letters can be copied and pasted into the field.

Note that the cover letter field can always be identified by clicking on the show button, just to the right of the cover letter tool in the form field toolbox.
