Can I use a form field as part of the subject of my notifier?

    First, I *REALLY* love this tool. It's pretty darn intuitive!

    I wish there was a way we could "tighten up" the form a bit, though...customize the space between sections of the form. But that's minor.

    To my question:

    When SUBMIT is clicked, JotForm sends a message with all the relevant info to my email box. But the "SUBJECT" of this email is always the same: New submission: [Name of My Form]

    Is there a way to CUSTOMIZE this JotForm subject? IOW, I'd like to receive a UNIQUE email subject, based upon, say, a field the user customizes. E.g., a field in my form might be: QUICK DESCRIPTION: "Mozart's Unpublished Plays"

    So, when they click SUBMIT, I would receive an email with a subject that might look like:

    To: Daniel Millen
    Subject: New JotForm Submission: "Mozart's Unpublished Plays"

    This way, I could keep track of submissions by Subject, say, and not have to hunt through each email's content.


    Thank you!

    Yes that would be a great feature and be able to add the "from email" as the email field in the form would be an extension of that, as then you could reply directly to the person submitting the form in your email - usually a basic "form submission" capability

    But i love this program also.
