How to add the Agreement Texts into the Form Email settings?Asked by tinajoinerphotography on August 07, 2013 at 05:39 PM
I would like to know if it is possible to receive submissions with the actual contract within the document? I'm concerned about how legal the contract is if the submission does not actually have the contract within it. I absolutely love the idea of this, but I want to make sure this will truly hold up in a court of law.
Thank you so much!
I am having challenges understanding exactly what you are trying to achieve. Do you have more information or say an example or screenshot that can help me visualize or understand this issue better?
I am not able to get a screen shot for some reason.
Essentially, when I look at my submitted forms, the actually form does not have my contract within it. It just has the information the client entered and their signature. The actually text of the contract they are signing is not included in that document. Does that make sense? I'm concerned that this will not be legal in court.

Thanks for the additional information. Yes, that makes sense. By default, headers and texts added to your form are not included to your Form Notification and or Email settings. You have to manually add the texts (agreement) to the email body.
In the form Email Settings, use the Add Columns/Rows and Split/Merge Columns button to add the text. Please refer to this image:
This is the form (https://www.jotform.com/32165978800864) in question, right? If yes, would you like us to do it for you? Just please confirm or authorize us to do it so we can proceed.
Furthermore, you have to check "Show Headers and Texts" in your Form Submissions page settings.
2. Click Settings in Gear Icon (top arrow from the below image)
3. Check "Show Headers and Texts" (bottom arrow from the below image)
Thank you SO MUCH! I appreciate your offer to fix it for me. I want to be able to do it myself in the future with new forms I create.
I figured it out by your detailed instructions. I truly appreciate your help!
