    Can I include form text information into submission emails?

    Asked by jen_harris on April 07, 2016 at 05:55 PM

    I've created a contract that I want to use for photography purposes.  However, when I fill out the form and submit it, only the fields that are filled out are sent in the submission.  Is there a way to include the terms that are laid out?  If they are signing the form, I need to have record of what exactly they are signing.  Thanks so much!

    We do not include text information into the emails.

    You may consider adding a submission PDF download link to the email alert and/or enabling an 'Attach PDF' option.

    Then, enable a 'Show Headers and Texts' option to include the text information into the PDFs.

    Here is a guide:

    How to show headers or text for contracts/terms/agreements in the PDF format of a submission

    An alternative approach is explained in the next guide:
