    Feature Request: Adding features to a form, that only appear in the email/webpage output

    Asked by JohnSSmith on December 03, 2015 at 03:50 PM

    When entering detail within a form created by Jotform, sectioning of information is very clear even if the same information is added over and over, and we can use CSS to make it even clearer if we want.

    However I have a large form (more than 200 input fields), where similar information can be added, and when looking at the resulting email, it can be hard to distinguish the beginning and start of the information.

    I would like the ability to add a html <hr /> line which can or not appear on the form, however I can have it part of the resulting webpage confirmation and part of the email.

    That's all I would want for the moment.


    However thinking outside the box, it may be possible to add other CSS items to sections, like a border or numbering to similar setions.


    Again this is only for the resulting email or webpage confirmation, not the Form, for which you already have fantastic CSS support.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I found a way to do what you need, you can custom the email template and then add a section for each group of fields you want, you can do it by clicking on the option Source Code while edition the Email Notification, try doing it with these steps : 

    1. While on the edit mode of the email notification, click on the Source Code icon, then add the your section as the image below :

    Do note, you have to first clear the email template and then do your custom email.

    2. This is the result in the email configuration :

    3. This the email that I got :

    The text and the line are not being showed on my form, only on the email, you can take a look to my sample form and you can also clone it if you want :


    Hope that helps.

    Let us know if you have more questions, we will be glad to assist you.
