    Include Images in the output form Autoresponder

    Asked by aperfectpocket on March 09, 2015 at 09:26 AM

    Hi,

     

    We would like to be able to have images taken in with the form (smartphone,tablets) to be shown at the bottom of the auto-responder email that is sent, rather than as a URL links for download. This is fine as an addition but the images included in the email is more important.

    Could you let us know how to achieve this please? We have 8 forms that would require this and would be extremely helpful.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Colin

    Hi Colin,

    Yes that's possible using IMG tag on the upload field variable.

    Example, if your upload field variable is {upload}, add the IMG: as a prefix so it would become {IMG:upload}

    Or here's an easier way. Open your autoresponder and click on the second upload field you see on the sidebar (the one with small information icon on the right side). That will automatically give you a variable with IMG tag.

    Example:

    If you need further help about this, let us know. Thanks!

    That is excellent thank you very much.

    Could you let us know if it is possible to have the images side by side when presented on the auto responder? so if you had say 4 images sent two would sit side by side at the top with the other two side by side below? instead on the four on top of each other?

    Many thanks

    I'm sorry, but I don't think that is possible. Aside from the IMG tag, there's no available option in the wizard that lets you re-align the results.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply guys, have found a way of getting them side by side :)

    One final question

    how do we get them to show in a PDF also? We have placed a link at the bottom of the form that customers can get a PDF copy of the auto responder if they want but it does not show the images in it?

    Forgot to say to get the images side by side, just place each code part side by side i/e.

    {IMG:upload1} {IMG:upload2} etc etc
