    How to use my name as the notification Sender name?

    Asked by ztwersky on September 02, 2014 at 08:24 AM
    Ok, I guess to make my name in the "sender name" I'd have to create a hidden text field with my name in it? Because in Notifiers you can't edit the sender name.

    Hello ztwersky,

    Yes your understanding is correct.

    If you want to add the "Sender name" to one of your desired text, you need to add the "Hidden Box" widget and set the default value. You can then select this hidden field as the "Sender Name" of your email alert. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Why do I need a widget? I just can make it hidden in the field property and it still shows up in the sender name of the responder. I did it.

    Hello ztwersky,

    Yes that is correct. You can either add a "Hidden Box" widget or you can add a normal text box in your form and make it hidden. Both the options will work without any issues.

    Thank you!
