    Asked on January 25, 2013 at 11:26 AM

    I am interested in having my form which is a site survey, automatically emailed to two different email address; The person filling it out (which a field is included in the survey for), and one to myself. The problem I am having is the format the emails are automatically sent in when you use the notification feature to do this. I have pictures that are included in the site survey, that I would like to just be displayed when emailed, not a link to open the picture. I have found that if I go into My Forms>Submissions> and forward the email to myself it comes in the form I would like it to be in all the time where the pictures are displayed automatically.. Is there a way to make this happen with out having to go in and forward the email to myself everytime? Or possibly another suggestion as to how I can extract this information in a format that will display the photos automatically?

     

    Thank You

    Hi,

    In order to display uploaded images directly on your email, you should add IMG prefix into your upload tag.

    Example:

    {uploadImage} => {IMG:uploadImage}

    This prefix will create an image with the original dimensions of the uploaded image. If you want to specify dimensions, you should provide them as arguments. Such as: {IMG:uploadImage:100:200} will put an image 100px wide and 200px tall.

     

    Let us know for questions. Thanks

    Where would I find the upload tag? Is this something I have to do from the editing page of the form? I looked in properties for the photo upload field on my form and I could not find where I would put IMG:uploadImage.

    You will have to edit your form notifications and add the prefix to the upload field variable.

    I attempted this and it still did not work. In fact the pictures did not show up at all on the email, even as a link.

    Hi,

    In addition to my colleague response, your image upload tags should be like this:

    instead of {IMG:uploadImage}

    If you need further assistance, do let us know. 
    Thank you!

    My form has the image upload feature through out it. Is that the exact wording I need to place in the brackets? What does the 20,29, and 30 denote in the test ex. - {IMG:doorPhoto20:100:100}? I will be setting up as many as 75 pages with the same format as the first page on the survey so I just wanted to make sure I code this correctly.

     

    Thank you

    I added this in my email notification feature, completed a test form, and I now get no pictures at all.

    Hi,

    That numbers are part of the form field variables. It goes that way to avoid field duplications, as you could see, your form upload fields have the same label as "Additional Photos".

    I have tried the same settings on my form and it works well. Please kindly rebuild your Form Notifications or Auto Responder. This might help you correct the issue. If not, please do let us know so we can investigate further.

     

    Thanks

    Just one thing, when you add the image dimensions, please do not COPY and PASTE the value. Type it to avoid breaking the tags.

    Thanks
