    Unable to see drop down response in email

    Asked by ebozzolo on January 10, 2013 at 09:54 AM

    Good Morning,

    I created a form in jotform but the drop down menu is not appearing in the email response.  I also tried this using the check box and it also did not work.  Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

    To explain the above images, on the E-mail wizard, you can edit the notification content as you have.

    The fields on the right are what will populate the e-mail notifications.  The "Click to Edit" dropdown had an answer of "Comp Time".  

    You can see that the e-mail has that answer included. once I added the field from the right.

    You can add any of the fields to your notification.  

    Also, if you delete and create a new notification, the new notification will include all fieldson the form.

    Hi again Ed ... I appreciate your answer, I must be missing something because I still can not get the drop down menu to work.  You make reference in your last answer

    "You can see that the e-mail has that answer included. once I added the field from the right."

    Is there something else I need to do to my form for this to work?

    You are missing a field {tag} of your DropDown in the Email Notification template body.

    Please try to click on your field title 'Click to edit under 'Form Fields', and this will add the correct {clickTo14} tag to your Email Notification template body. Mentioned tag is related to your DowpDown and responsible for populating.

    Alternatively, you may add a new Email Notification, so that all the fields will be included automatically.

    Please let us know if something is not clear.
