    Thanks for asking. There's no way that I know of to format the value in the notification. However, one workaround would be to embed the form's full source into a web page of your own and add a script to the same page to format the number before submission, as in this demo.

    Would this be feasible in your case?

    Hi fincalosbalcones,

    You can format your email notification to include the $ before the total. To do that, add the dollar sign ($) on the second column next to the Label of the field you want to put the sign. See image below:

    I tested it and submitted the form. I received an email with the dollar sign before the total. See image below:

    Let us know if this is what you were trying to accompish.
