    How to include text in HTML fields on email notifications?

    Asked by rothschild86 on April 23, 2016 at 08:53 PM
    And then the contract changes, and notifier does not get updated... Any more robust ways? :)

    Seems like this is not currently possible, the only way is copying and pasting the text manually on the email notification. 

    A possible way to do this, but it will not allow you to format the text, is by using a text area instead of the text field.

    I will escalate this as a feature request, though we can not provide an ETA about when it will be available, we will ensure to let you know via this thread.

    Thank you for a response, Kevin. I followed someone else's advice and used Narrative Fields widget. It auto-populates the responder and the pdf. This is definitely a hack though. Would be good to have this as a core functionality.
