    How Can I Specify the Sender Name of the Incoming Submission?

    Asked by scratchtosave on November 11, 2015 at 08:32 PM



    I checked through the forum for an answer to this and gave up.

    The reply to submission works great. We can specify the reply-from email address, however not the displayed sender name. Right now it's showing my first name as the sender, not sure where it's pulling this data so I can update it accordingly. Your help would be much appreciated!

    If you need extra information, please let us know.

    Have a nice day.
