    incomplete forms received via email

    Asked by Stepbysteppartnership on July 14, 2016 at 09:22 AM

    Hi There,

    our Jotform has all the fields marked as required, and this is also showing on our website and when I try to leave out information the correct error message is flagged up that "this field is required". The problem arises in that we are receiving email notifications of sign ups that ARE incomplete and have additional fields e.g. "company" that are not on the form or on the website?

    Very confusing...


    any help is greatly appreciated.


    Kind regards

    When reviewing the form Simple Event Registration Form, I noticed that the email notification had different fields from the form.

    I am assuming that you updated the form by adding and removing fields. When a notification is created, this does not get automatically get updated when the form is modified. You would need to update the notification manually or re-create it. The second would be best.
