    gift certificate image on notification email w/ unique id?

    Asked by SprayFoam on April 17, 2013 at 10:53 AM

    I've successfully created a GC form and it works w/ Paypal.  What I'm trying to do now is generate a "gift certificate" with the form's unique ID on it to deter duplicates.


    Is there a way to add this ID to the image?  Would I just create a div and use CSS to locate it on the email?? or will that be too flimsy with all the different email programs out there??

    Basically just want to add that ID to the image....  any help or direction would be great!

    As far as I know , you cannot alter the image to add unique ID to each submission. You can add Unique ID to your form then you will see the unique ID on your email notification/submission.

    To add unique ID, please see this tutorial.

    Then on your email notification,

     You can also put the unique id on the subject.

    This can be done. it will take the use of tables. Create a table with your graphic as a background image. make sure your table borders are set to zero. Then strategically place your table at the correct spots to accomodate your unique ID Output.
