Available settings:

When the add-on is installed and activated it will extend Super Forms with some options for each of your forms.
Below you can find out what options are available.
Some of these apply to creating the new post. And some of these can also be overridden with your field elements.
A simple example could be that you would want to let users publish pages, but they should all be published under a specific parent.
This way you will have full control over how your content is being created!
