    I got the date stamp to work, but I'm not able to get the purchase amount to show. You see in the screenshot above that I shared... I wrote in purchase amount and the amount 1.99.  It doesn't show on the receiving end. Anyway I can get that to work? Is there a guide for this?

    Please remove the curly braces in the {1.99}. After that, disable the "Hide Empty Fields" option in the "Advanced" tab of Email Notification. Here's a guide:

    1. In Form Builder V4, click the "Settings" menu and then go to the "Emails" section. Select the Notification and then click the "Edit" icon.

    2. Go to the "Advanced" tab and disable the "Hide Empty Fields" option.

    3. After that, click the "Save" button.

    Here's the result:

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
