    Just to add, here's how you can make use of the "Narrative Fields" widget.

    The Email Notification that you will receive will look like the image below when someone fills up your form and submit it.


    I hope this helps. If there's anything else that we can be of assistance, kindly let us know.

    By the way, this is the form URL of the sample I made, http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51095636465966?. Please feel free to clone it for your convenience. 

    Thank you so much.
