    Can I make a 'free text (html)' show up in the submitted form?

    Asked by jsorensen on July 18, 2011 at 11:18 AM

    Any section that enables a viewer to fill in shows up in the submitted form.  But any section that has free text, does not show up in the submitted form.  Is there anyway to enable this to show up in a submitted form?

    Hi jsorensen,

    Thank you for your message. You can manually add the contents of your Free Text (HTML) field in the template of the email notification itself. 

    The Email Notification Wizard contains a text editor which is like a huge Free Text (HTML) field complete with its own toolbar, wherein you can add images and text and format it according to your specific needs (i.e. bold, italics, change text color or font face, etc).

    To go to the Email Notification Wizard, please click the Email Alerts button under the Setup & Embed tab of  your toolbar. Then click the notification that you want to edit. Once you see the Free Text Area, manually add the contents of your form's Free Text (HTML) field. You can use the built-in toolbar to modify the text appearance. Then save the notification.

    We hope you find this information useful. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for using JotForm!
