    Is there an email invoice template at JotForm?

    Asked by digichef on February 16, 2016 at 11:20 AM

    I would like to send autoresponder emails formatted as an invoice, similar to a professional Quick Books invoice.

    I'm having a tough time editing the html in the autoresponder email to format properly.

    Just a simple, professional html template with inline CSS would be great.

    I'm familiar with Fresh Books, but I'm just looking for a simple html responder/notifier page that formats all form fields as a standard invoice for printing when received as an email.

    I did a quick search for invoice email templates but I have not found anything that can be easily applied at JotForm. You will need to find some email template and also match the JotForm field {tags} on it. Alternatively, stick with the integrated FreshBooks option.

    I appreciate your time.  I'm just stuck.  I'll be a customer of yours going forward, I just need a little help to get over this lump.

    I've used your builder to create tables etc in the responder, but when I copy/paste any code, htlm with inline css, seems to preview correctly for a minute on Joftform & in Dreamweaver, but the css doesn't seem to stick after you save and exit.  Kinda odd.

    If you come up with anything, I think it would be a cool thing as a plug in somehow.
    (or just some basic code that works w/ Jotform's structure and  that could be edited externally and re-inserted)

    Thanks Again,

    Sorry, I just re-read your response.  Exactly correct, find an email template that can be copy/pasted into the text editor, open html editor (in Jotforms Builder) and have it preserve the results.  My code seems clean, previews correctly in the responder/notifier edit screen, but then doesn't preserve the inline css formatting when the email is sent?

    Sorry brother, I'm bewildered..

    Hi digichef

    I have something in mind, but I need an actual form with elements (fields) and submissions to test it first. Is it ok if you share the form you have or would you like me to create one from scratch (in case your form is private)?

    Disclaimer: I'm not a professional coder and I don't work for JotForm. I just try my best helping fellow users on spare time.
