    How to display the field answer in submission email subject line?

    Asked by Jon Best on April 26, 2015 at 06:49 AM
    Finally, I wanted to know if there was a way to add predetermined text plus text supplied by the person wanting to contact me to form the subject line of e-mail sent to me to make it easier to identify in my e-mail inbox.  For example, my contact form would include radio buttons.  In the "Question" field, I wanted to put "Reason for Contact" followed by "Reason 1", "Reason 2", and so forth in the "Options" field and then selecting "Allow Other".   Then, if the person selected "Reason 1", the subject line of the e-mail would read "Predetermined Text" - "Option 1".

    Hello Jon,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. You should edit the notification email alert of your form and then add the field name tag in the email template. Please check the screenshot below on how to do this:


    Hope this helps.
