    Email Notification: Changes made inside of notification table are not saved

    Asked by redpalm on September 02, 2016 at 07:36 PM

    This is absolutely the strangest thing I have ever experienced on JotForm.

    On the notifier email, it is a table with the fields.  I have re-coded the table manually, and copy-pasted it via the source view.  It previews perfectly.

    When I save the form and come back in, the email is reformatted AND one of the rows is moved up four rows (Job History).  

    I pasted my raw html data several times, and all times, it is reformatted.

    The reformatting is putting background colors on every other row (which I DON'T want) and moving this row up.

    Please let me know what you find out.

    Here is the code I'm trying to copy-paste:

    <p>A new employment application has been received.</p>

    <table id="emailFieldsTable" class="mceNonEditable" border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5">

    I have cloned your form and made some tests and I was able to replicate mentioned issue on my cloned form. 

    After I add code you provided my email Notification looks like this. Job History is below Equipment text.

    However when I save changes close, then re-open email Wizard and open my email Notification, Job History row is moved up, like you mentioned.

    I am not sure why this is happening. I will escalate this issue to our developers and we will inform you via this thread once this issue was resolved.
