Auto updating form E-mail templatesAsked by northislandnissan on March 08, 2016 at 02:56 PM
Everytime I update our form, I notice that the information found in the auto-e-mails doesn't update.
For instance, if I this were my form:
I set up the auto response e-mails to reply to the person submitting, as well as my staff. These e-mail go to 5 people, each e-mail basically says something different.
So now, 3 months later, I change my form to look like this:
Date of Birth:
But the e-mails all show the original info still. They don't remove the Age field or add the date of birth field.
The only fix is to delete the email and start again with each one (as far as I'm aware). Tedious when you have 4 forms that go to 5 different people each time.
Is there something I'm missing to make my life easier?
Thank you for contacting us.
We do update email templates, but only default ones. When you add any modifications to the email template body, the auto-update is turned off.
If you need to fix many form email templates, you may consider using a 'Hide Empty Fields on Email' option.
It will safely lock the Question/Answer table with enabled auto-update. To fix modified email templates, you can click on a 'Lock Data Table' option to restore the default format Question/Answer table.
If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
