    Alternate email notifier format similar to the Forward email tool in submission panel

    Asked by jimla on July 13, 2016 at 06:21 PM

    I much prefer the format shown in the Submissions window for the email notifier. The field label locations (Left, Top, etc.) are displayed as in in original form. Unfortunately, the default format in the email notifier has all the field labels on the left side of the table. It is very cumbersome to edit the table for better readability. I can manually forward an email with the desired format within the Submissions window. Is there any way to automatically forward this email as a notifier?

    Hi Jim,

    You can also copy the source code of the email template from the Submission panel of the Forward email tool.

    Please review the screencast video below on how I meant.

    Once you copy the source code from submission panel to the Notifier email template code, you will have instant email message template that is exactly the one from Submission panel.

    Hope this help. Let us know if this not how you meant.

    Hi Jonathan,

    Thank you for your reply. Your suggestion only works for a specific submission. It does not create a generic template. I would have to edit the source code and substitute the field key for every field.

    Once you paste the source code, you can start replacing the data for the form fields variable:

    In that way, you will create your own template. Let us know if you need more help.
