In the integration settings, you will see a “Map Fields” option. This is where you will need to map the fields from your form to the corresponding fields in Meta Box. The “Post Title” field is the default and required field in Meta Box, so you will need to map your form’s “Post Title” field to this field in Meta Box. You have the option to map additional fields by clicking on the Plus (+) icon.
