Forms Documentation

Email notifications can be sent to specified Administrators and to the user who sumbitted the form.

Notifications are set per form, in the form 'Notifications' tab. In the Notification tab, you can enable Admin and User notifications independently and specify the use of an existing email template or create custom template for each response.

Email templates

The following variables are available in the email templates:

Form variables

{form:label} {form:short_name} {form:id} {fentry_id} if available {fentry_hash} if available

Form fields loop

All form fields can be accessed in the Form fields loop. Multi-select values will be shown as a comma delimited string, and conditionals can be used to vary your display.

{field:label} {field:value} {field:count}


        {field:label} {field:value} {field:count}
        {if '{field:value}' == 2}I am 2 {field:value}{/if}

Form fields single variables

Simple form variables can be shown outside of the form fields variable pair by prefixing with 'field'. For example: {field:field_name}
