    This is really terrible!

    Asked by CelesteInTex on May 09, 2016 at 05:09 PM

    This is really terrible!

    I just spent 3 hours figuring this out, and it just shouldn't have to be this hard.

    It took me a while to figure out that the address fields were all the same from form to form: addr_line1, addr_line2, etc. And I just couldn't extrapolate from the examples to my specific form, i.e. it took a while to figure out that the first part of the string, for me, should be address16. Lot of trial and error...

    Then I had to figure out how to get the phone numbers and email into the email without the headers/labels.

    I finally figured out that I had to go into the properties for each field to figure out the correct ID:

    So this is what my email form finally contains:

    {participant1}

    {address16:addr_line1}

    {address16:addr_line2}

    {address16:city}

    {address16:state}

    {address16:postal}

    {address16:country}

    {phoneNumber7:full}

    {altPhone:full}

    {email4}

    And this is what is delivered, which is what I want:

    Celeste LastName

    DummyAddress1

    DummyAddress2

    City/Town

    State

    Zip

    United States

    (132) 132-1313

    (123) 213-2132

    celeste@myemail.com

    Like I said, it just shouldn't be this complicated to configure the email notification.

    Thanks for your attention to this!
