    How to hide empty fields on email notification ?

    Asked by watchhelp on January 14, 2016 at 03:14 PM

    Hello again,


    I would like empty fields NOT to show on the emails, both to us and to form filler. 

    I saw the note saying this only works on the Default Email. How do find / set up the emails to use only the default? 

    Can I still customize the contents of the email if I use the default template?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can hide empty fields in your email notification by following this guide : http://www.jotform.com/help/256-How-to-Hide-Empty-Fields-on-Email-Alerts 

    However, if you do it, will not be able to edit the template, if you do it, then empty fields will be displayed in the email notification.

    Hope this helps.
