    Help! My form is done and notifications get through, but I don't get the results of the form - I just get a heap of code.

    Hi julesfish

    Submission tests on a clone of your form showed no problems in my Gmail inbox. This leads me to believe that the issue is related to the embedded form and not when it is used from its actual address. (As you may know, forms are cloned using the address where the form resides and not from the address of the page in which it is embedded.)

    Unless there is some compelling reason to embed the form via the source method, try another format (iFrame is usually a safe bet).

     

    Please let us know if this solves the problem.

    Thanks.

    Hi Abajan,

    Thanks heaps for your advice, but the problem still exists.

    Interestingly, if I change the recipient adress to my own personal account (rather than my client's business address), the form comes through fine.

    What could that be about?

     

    Cheers

    Julie

    Hi again

    Since the notifications received by your email account appear as they should, it may be some setting in the client\'s email account that is causing the problem. Until the situation is rectified, is it possible to have the notifications received from JotForm by your client\'s business email account automatically forwarded to a Yahoo!, Gmail or Hotmail address of theirs? Gmail has a feature that can do this and I was just wondering if your client\'s email provider might have the same facility.

    I will organise something like your suggestion. Thanks so much for your help again.

    Glad to be of assistance, Julie.

    Perhaps I should add that the recent glitch where several Gmail user accounts were inaccessible made me see the wisdom of having copies of emails sent to at least one alternate location.

    This short video shows how automatic forwarding is done with Gmail but all of the major email providers have a way to do this. Hopefully, your client\'s email service has a (simple) way to do it too.
