    Email Notification: Changes made inside of notification table are not saved

    Asked by gripelectric on May 01, 2017 at 06:03 PM

    I'm having an issue similar to this question: 


    I format the email, notification and autoresponder. They save fine until I run a test. Then the email is truncated at line 957.

    Now I realize what i'm doing with this form may push the limits of what JotForm can do. This is a large inventory with lots of conditions and calculations, but everything I've read, there is no limits on the emails or the forms for fields.


    Any help would be appreciated! Below is the source code I'm using for the email prior to it being cut off:

    The default is also truncated, so I am sure this is because of the character limit in the email template. As far as I remember, the limit is 65, 500 characters. Your form email has 108, 855 characters. 

    A workaround would be to get a PDF copy of the submission. Either you'll include the PDF link download in the email or Attach the PDF.

    The default email was not truncated when I created it. The PDF is not
    really a workaround unless I can format it better. Can the PDF be formatted?
    A workaround may be splitting the emails up so that each section has its
    own email.
    Thanks for the quick response!
