Now, look for the collection of lines in the HTML for the form that all start with "input type="hidden"

Copy the code below, replacing "FIELDNAME" with "deadlinetext" and "VALUE" with "deadlinetext":

<input type="hidden" name="custom FIELDNAME" value="VALUE" />

The result should look something like this: 

<input type="hidden" name="deadlinetext" value="deadlinetext />

That's it. When someone fills out your form, the hidden field will be submitted and stored along with the subscriber's other information.
