    Hidden Field for text only

    Asked by gallioz on February 09, 2015 at 11:42 PM


    Is it possible to have a hidden field on a form that shows in a 'text' only style email notification. The reason is that I have a few forms on the website which need to connect to my CRM via a text only email, not html. I have a second notifier set up which goes as a text only to a specific email address which is how the information goes direct to the CRM. The hidden field I have set up shows in the regular html style email notifier, however nothing shows up in the text format of the email in notifier 2 which is where I need it to be showing.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for your help.

    You will just need to open the second notifier and add the hidden field manually. The reason why you'll manually do this because our system auto-updater in the notification email settings will only work for the default format which is the HTML tables. 

    I've checked it and I guess you've already resolved this problem:
