    Adding unique ID to donation thank you email

    Asked by GenYOUth on September 17, 2012 at 10:58 AM

    I have a donation form that has a PayPal integration. I designed a thank you email that goes to the donor after the donation is submitted and want to include the donation amount in the email. I've been using the form field name, {yourValued11} to automatically populate the total, and it works, however it adds all the fields associated with the PayPal integration (Name, email, address…). I just want to add the donation amount. I tried adding the unique ID{#input_11_donation} but it appears blank when the email is sent. Is there a way to  just include the donation amount? 


    Thanks so much.

    I cloned your form and made a sample donation to test the results.

    I noticed that you have a "Thank You" e-mail notification and also a "Thank You" page.

    The Thank you page currently accomplishes what you are looking for using  {yourValued11} without the paypal information.   However, when the users pay with their Credit Card, there is no way to strip the amount alone.  

    There is a ticket opened for this request to be implemented.  Unforutnately, our developers are very busy working on a number of improvements and so at this time we can not give you an eta on this feature.

    We apologize for the inconveninece.
