    SalesForce Integration: Apostrophes sent from a Long Text Entry field are being replaced by HTML code.

    Asked by mashape on June 20, 2017 at 02:11 PM

    Hello Jotform Support,

    I'm getting a funny error message on my jotform submissions whenever someone uses an apostrophe.  

    Example, this came from a lead that was created today:  plaquet.bart@platinion.com


    If you scroll down to the "How Can We Help You" field, you will see the following.  In jotform, the Don't appears correct, however, when it comes thru to Sfdc, the sentence looks like:   Don't hesitate to contact me for more info.

    Have you had other issues like this happen?  Any recommendations on solving?

    Thank you,

    I have forwarded this to our back-end team. You will be notified via this thread when the issue gets fixed.
