    How can I change the submission data in the email notification to resemble a form-like format?

    Asked by Dennis Slagle on June 18, 2015 at 10:11 AM

    Basically I would love it if there was a way to have the data that was collected, displayed to me in a different format.

    Right now after someone enters their data, the info is emailed to me and is just listed out line by line with the questions and the answer.

    What I would like is if I could receive the form almost the way and look of the form when it was entered. I mean questions and answers would be sectioned off on different parts of the page and titles would be BOLD FACE and the form look a little more sectioned than just a long list of text.

    From what I understand you want to view the form submission data in a different format that resembles how the live form is viewed.

    The closest that you can currently get to that would be to "attach pdf" in the email notification. Or alternatively, you can also just add in a "pdf-link".
