    Emails: Add a field to subject line

    Asked by lovleah on July 18, 2016 at 06:18 AM

    Hi

    1.   when I receive an form submission to my email account I wish for the persons first and last name to appear in the email heading I receive, so it is easy to find a particular persons form without having to open every single email.  How do I do this thanks

    example:

    currently:  New Submission Heart Newborn Photography Session Booking Form

    what I would like......

    First Name Last Name - Heart Newborn Photography Session Booking Form

    Secondly,

    When the form submits to email the data runs in a small column that means when I print the form out it is 4 pages long, although it does not display this way on the web page  (I have a photo example of this)  so you can see how it displays nicely laid out on the web page, but then formats in a tiny column when coming to my email.

     

    thank you for your much needed help

    Hey Leah-Anne, you may achieve both on the same section of your Form Builder. Let's break this down into 2 sections so it's easier to follow:

    1. When I receive an form submission to my email account I wish for the persons first and last name to appear in the email heading I receive, so it is easy to find a particular persons form without having to open every single email.  How do I do this thanks

    example:

    currently:  New Submission Heart Newborn Photography Session Booking Form

    what I would like......

    First Name Last Name - Heart Newborn Photography Session Booking Form

    This can be done by changing your Notification's subject line. Just click EMAILS at the top > EDIT > click the PENCIL icon on the far right to populate the SUBJECT LINE with the form field you want (in this case, it's probably the MOTHER NAME field). Here's how it would look like:

    2. Secondly, When the form submits to email the data runs in a small column that means when I print the form out it is 4 pages long, although it does not display this way on the web page  (I have a photo example of this)  so you can see how it displays nicely laid out on the web page, but then formats in a tiny column when coming to my email.

    On that same section where you changed the EMAIL SUBJECT, you may also change the email template (the actual content of the email). As I checked, your labels are somehow long, thus causing this. You may adjust the width of the first column so it looks better when you receive them on email. Here's how:

    Hope that helped! Don't hesitate to get back to us if you need further assistance.
