Sorry, we don't support setting focus or changing a tab order.
We provide default tab order (that would match the order of fields) so users can use TAB (or Shift-TAB) to navigate between fields.
Set Focus to at least the first field would be awesome. I just hate taking my hands off the keyboard when I’m entering data. Breaks my stride.

As a workaround you can press Tab once the form is loaded, which should activate the first field.
Thanks for the suggestion, but pressing Tab does not seem to work on my web form (once it's loaded)...
It would be great if FormsCentral did better at this. At a minimum, Dixie's suggestion makes sense to have the option to automatically set the focus to the first field when loading. That way users can get started typing right away without having to go click a mouse to Field 1 - have the software do that work instead.
