    Exported Fields are mixed up!

    Asked by EffieMcNair on January 20, 2016 at 07:06 AM

    Hi There,

    I've two groups in my form to describe two different vehicles.  I had them in one long list but then decided to split up the fields into two columns for better design.  When I tested it in my email, also through submissions I realised that the software has its own mind and grouping the fields in a different way - Horizontally rather then vertically! (see screenshot)

    How do I get the software to print the fields in the 'right' way - as it is useless for us the way its printed now...what the point to have two columns if its mix up all the fields - or maybe its me that doing something wrong?

     

    Screenshot attached. 

    Thanks

    Effie

    The data is ordered in the email based on the order of the fields in the form. You have them side-by-side so that's how you receive it - 1st field in the left and second field in the right and so on. 

    You will have to edit your notifier rows if you wish to use the two-column form, but get the data in the order based on your first screenshot.

    You can just copy/paste the data in the notifier.
