    Can I customize the text portion of the link that is created for uploaded files in an email notification?

    Asked by asimsidiqi on April 10, 2015 at 09:04 AM

    I have another questions. On the email message (notification) can I write "Document is attached" and link it to the uploaded document url?

     

    like:

    <a target="_blank" href="inputuploaddocumentfield">Document is attached</a>

     

    is this possible?

    Hi,

    Yes this is possible, you can follow the screenshots below:

    1. Click "Emails" and click the existing notification.

    2. Inside the email body, you can type a text, highlight it and anchor a link.

    3. Here's the anchor link window, you'll add the downloadable link of the file here.

     

    If you are familiar with HTML tags, you can directly edit the HTML by clicking the "HTML" icon in the toolbar of the email body.

    I hope that helps.

    Kind regards.

    Inside of your Email Notification you can add a field and value of that filed that will represent upload field and value of it. If there is upload field inside of your form then inside of your notification that filed will be visible on the right side in Form Fields list.

    Then when you receive submission Email if someone has uploaded files there will be a link to that file.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Unfortunately, this is not possible for uploaded files.

    Links are automatically created by the field tag (the one that my colleague @BJoanna showed in her screenshots) which means that the whole anchor tag is created when you add it to the email notification template and cannot be modified.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
