    Change the form notifier to show address and different subject line

    Asked by Wildspirityoga on October 23, 2014 at 01:40 PM

    I have multiple forms created and need them to show up as the proper submission when I get e-mail alerts. Each time I get an e-mail alert, the subject line says "ALERT: TT Application for Your Review". I need it to say the actual application and not a generic "TT application". 

    The name of the application is "300 Hour Teacher Training Application" and need that to show up in the subject line of my e-mails. 

    For the future, can you please tell me how to make the subject line in e-mail alerts the same name as the application being submitted?

    I have attached a picture of the e-mail alert subject line and the link to the form with the correct name.

    SECOND QUESTION - I have made the address portion of the application mandatory to fill in. In the e-mail alert I receive, I can see all of the application answers EXCEPT for the address. I have to sign into JotForm to see the applicants address. Do you know why this is and how to fix it? 

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    For the future, can you please tell me how to make the subject line in e-mail alerts the same name as the application being submitted?

    If you go to your notifications and click to edit you will see at the top a field where you can set your subject line:

    As shown, it is currently set to: "ALERT: TT Application for Your Review", but you can replace it by typing "300 Hour Teacher Training Application" as the name that you have mentioned.

    SECOND QUESTION - I have made the address portion of the application mandatory to fill in. In the e-mail alert I receive, I can see all of the application answers EXCEPT for the address. I have to sign into JotForm to see the applicants address. Do you know why this is and how to fix it?

    We allow only one question per thread, so usually we would create a new thread for this, but since it is being set in the same location, I will answer it here.

    The reason why you do not see it is because the email notification body is not the original that is autocreated for you. What this means is that each time you add a new field, you will need to add it manually to your jotform notification and autoresponder as well.

    Now if any of the two (notifier or autoresponder) is left as it was created for you by our system, then our system will update it as soon as a new field was added to the jotform.

    I would suggest these next guides:

    Setting Up Email Notifications

    Creating a Form Autoresponder

    Notification/Autoresponder Email Details

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
    Ben
