    Text not appearing on submitted form

    Asked by michael0308 on November 14, 2010 at 09:44 AM

    I created an employment application form and at the end put a block of "legaleze" for the attorneys and a place for the applicant to sign that they understand. I have saved, closed, and reopened the form and the text is there. It is there in Preview mode, but has disappered in submission form. What am I doing wrong?

    Do you want the Free Text (HTML) field to be shown on the submissions?

    Simply add it to the email body b copying and pasting it from the page. You cannot include Free Text (HTML) field contents on the emails using a tag.

    To add some text to your emails:
    1. Open the form on the form editor
    2. Click on "Setup & Share" tab on the top toolbar
    3. Click on "Email Alerts"
    4. Click on "Notifications"
    5. Add the text to the body of the email
    6. Finish and Save the form.
