    Can I give to the email notification the same background color as the one of the form?

    How can I embed the color, or is it possible to get the color of the background emailed too?

    Thanks for contacting us.

    Are you refering that you'd like to have the same background color of your form in your email notification? For example you have this form: https://www.jotform.com/32525132551849 and you'd like to receive the email notification with that same color, in this way: 

    To accomplish that you need to edit the HTML code of the email notification:

    - First take the color of the background of the form.


    - Then Proceed to insert the HEX color value in the HTML code of the email body:

    I hope this helps, however if you need further assistance, let us know.

    After working a little bit more in your form, I found that you can make your email notification to look more alike to the style of your form. See this example I created in Microsoft Word:

    That's much easier to do if you are more familiarized with Word than our plataform in our form builder. To do it just take a look at this video of the steps:


    Here is also my form, you can clone it if it's helpful for you: https://www.jotform.com/form/32526452303951

    I hope this can help you in to accomplish what you need. However if you need further assistance about this, let us know or open a new thread if you need to ask about an unrelated thing.

    Thanks for using Jotform.
