    Make the results in e-mail notification all capital letters

    Asked by displacedanimalnetwork on July 01, 2014 at 01:55 PM

    Hi-

     

    I volunteer for an organization that would like to see the form returned in all capital letters. That is how the submitted notices are posted, so less editing.

     

    I know how to use capitalize, and while that looked better, all caps are really preferred.

     

    I can control the drop downs obviously, but the free test for fields are an issue.

     

    I am not as concerned about how the values are stored in the actual form, but if it could be caps in both I would be thrilled.

     

    I have seen this question before, but I can't find an example with a good answer.

    all find capitalize how to use

    Hi,

    There is not currently a way to do this within Jotform.  The only way to do this would be to use the source code for your form and add a custom script to do it form you.  Here is a thread that discusses a method of doing so:

    Please let us know if this is not what you were looking for and we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you for using Jotform!

    Can I use the solution on this page to add the form which forces all caps to Facebook? I am not really a web developer and didn't want to spent a ton of time on this.

    I guess I am a little confused on that part.

    For the record I will sign up for a paid account once this works.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately this would not be possible with Facebook integration.  Facebook does not allow users to run custom scripts on their pages and our integration will also not allow for source code to be embedded into a Facebook page.  To accomplish what you need, you would have to have a webpage setup running a script which alters the Jotform form you have embedded into the page.  Since you can only have the form embedded into a Facebook page and not the script, the form will work but the all caps aspect will not.  If you can abandon the need for all caps, Facebook integration is actually quite easy:

    Keep in mind that Facebook integration requires SSL based submissions, our free account only allow for 10 such submissions.  Please let us know if you have any other questions and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you for using Jotform!

    Yeah, I integrated the Facebook thing fine. Like I said, I will be buying the package I need once I prove this works.

     

    I can't get the e-mails to come in all caps either, right?

     

    I am working on abandoning the need for all caps, but it is a requirement right now.

    Hi,

    You are correct, you either get the ability to integrate with Facebook, or the ability to run custom scripts along side your form.  I have seen some pretty elaborate ways of re-submitting submissions in order to format them.  But this requires a great deal more setup to accomplish.  You can force the form to appear to be all caps with this code entered to the "inject custom css" field:

    .form-textbox, .form-textarea, .form-dropdown,

    .form-list {text-transform:uppercase;}

    But the submissions will still come through as lower case unfortunately.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you for using Jotform!
