    How can I prevent unanswered questions on my form from being displayed in the email alerts?

    Asked by jacindamorr on January 22, 2015 at 04:36 PM

    Hi, is there a way to customize the emails submissions? They are not ascetically pleasing for one, but my main problem is that I just receive way too much information. For example, my form is set up so that certain questions are hidden unless other answers require extra info. The email submission shows all questions on the form so there ends up being lots of words and blank spaces that aren't necessary. Is there a way to set it up so that only answered questions are submitted? This would very helpful. Thanks!

    Thanks for asking. Unanswered questions can be hidden from email alerts. Please see this guide for details. It should be noted that once the data table in an email alert (notifier or autoresponder) has been edited, the Hide Empty Fields on Email Alerts feature will not work with that particular email alert.
