    Change Matrix Colors In Email Notification

    Asked by StudioBe on December 03, 2013 at 04:11 PM

    I know how to insert CSS inside of the forms preference tab to change the color, size, boarder, etc. of a matrix field. However, even when I change it, the matrix doesn’t change in the email notification. Is it possible to change it in the email notification as well?

    Yes, that is possible, you can either use the HTML button to insert any sort of HTML codes (such as the example below)

     

    Or you can use the toolbar to adjust colors etc to make them appear similarto the custom CSS in the form

     

    I hope this helps you to get accomplished what you are looking for

    I’m not sure you understood my question. I set up a notification that embeds matrix fields form the form into the notification using {matrixfield} style tags. On the form the appearance of these matrix fields is effected by the CSS that I injected via the preferences tab. However, when they show up in the notification they appear in their default grey state. Is there a way I can effect the appearance of the matrix field in the notification email when I am embedding them into said notification using just the {matrixfield} style tags?

    Hello.

    Are you referring to the pink color of the cell and you want to change that color somehow? If so, can change that from the toolbar as pointed out by my Support Manager.

    To be specific, You need to click the cell and click the "Cell Properties" button from the toolbar as pointed on the image below.

    The Cell Properties window should popup. Please navigate to "Advanced Tab" where you can change the background color.

     

    If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you

    Unfortunately, the answer is no. We can not style the {matrix} tag output in emails, since the matrix answers layout and styles are hard-coded.
