    How to remove unselected fields in the notification email?

    Asked by fieryfoods on May 06, 2015 at 01:47 PM

    Hi,

    I have a form that uses a significant amount of checkboxes and the way they appear in notifications is unnecessarily long and laborsome to sift through.

    Below is what the notification currently looks like. I need ONLY the checkbox selections and fields a user completes to show up in the notification, not a placeholder for all of the checkboxes and fields they don't select.

    Can you help?

    I would recommend for you to try enabling the Hide Empty Fields On Emails option under Advance Settings tab of the Preference toolbar.

    I'm really not sure where you got this: "works using the default email notifier". But, if you are asking if the answer above works with the default email notifier, it does.

    If this is not what you are really asking. Kindly help us understand your concern by proving a complete instruction of your request. Thank you.
