    Hello again,

     

    I am trying to add a custom sender name and reply to email address to the notification email but i just get a drop box with only one option... 'Jotform'

    See attached... any ideas... I am sure your documentation says I can just type the name, so not sure why there are drop boxes?

    Thanks

    Regards

    Bevan

    Hi,

    Upon checking you form I see what is the problem on your "sender name" and reply-to email" please check my screencast below on why your "sender name" and reply-to email" had a blank dropdown.

    In order to see your "sender name" and reply-to email" you need to put back all the labels on your form.

     

    Hope this help.

    Thanks.

    Hi Bevan,

    My colleague Val is right, you would need to have a label for each of the options in order to correctly show them in the email body, submissions and to chose them in the email headers (sender name and reply-to fields and the autorseponder).

    Now I understand what you want to achieve, but you can do that while still having the labels with the names in them.

    All we need is to add this CSS code:

    .form-line > label {
        display: none;
    }

    It does next: It will hide all the labels, but still have them for use with conditions, emails and integrations.

    This is how it would look like: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43403096472958

    While this is how the emails setup would look like:

    The code above would still show the labels in the Form Builder, but if you do not want that to happen, you can add this code as well:

    .form-line > div > div.form-label {
        display: none;
    }

    I had noticed that your autoresponder was not setup correctly so I would suggest next few guides that would help you with everything mentioned in my response:
