    Hi guys, is it still not possible to pull specific matrix fields from submissions to notification emails?

    Is using calculation widget the only alternative?

    I hope you are referring to the Matrix Dynamique widget. It can be added to email notification. Can you tell us what you are trying to achieve so we can explain if there is a workaround?

    Ow no, not Matrix Dynamique. I am using the input table.

    I just want to be able to add specific fields of the table to the email, not the entire table.

    Matrix Dynamique would be the workaround?

    If I understand you correctly, you only want certain values in the input table to be displayed on the email notification, preferably only those that were filled out, like the second table below?


    If yes, unfortunately it is still not possible and the only way to dynamically cherry pick values from the input table is to use conditions and fill in the form calculation widget, which I can see you're already doing.

    actually no... i don't want to show the table at all. just one specific value. so lets say row 2 column 2 is filled with the number 10 i want to be able to show the number 10 somewhere in the email.

    it would be something like input_table[2][2] like when we prepopulate input tables...

    Unfortunately, you cannot fill values like input_table[2][2] in the email. The only workaround we can suggest is using the Form calculation field.
