    Can I include a {field name} in a form warning message

    Asked by MtCoolumVets on March 08, 2016 at 01:18 AM

    I have changed a foom warning message to warn that the client has already made a submission.


    I would like to personalise this by including their name in the message, by adding {firstName}(this is one of the fields I am using) to the message, in the hope this would add their name to the message. It doesn't work. Any suggestions? It's not the end of the world if it can't be done.

    Thanks, Dain

    If you are trying to add {field tag} while you're changing the warning message, unfortunately, it is not possible with JotForm.

    If you have any question or issues, please do not hesitate contacting us. We will be glad to assist you.

    OK, thanks. I didn't think it could be done, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

    You're most welcome. I've also tested on my side. Unfortunately, it is not possible with JotForm. However, it could be done with adding Javascript code on your form. To do that, you need to embed your form with source code. I will also check a solution for you. If I find it I will inform you via this thread.
