Checkbox Value not posting to Email Notification

  1. I have a set amount of questions listen in a Checkbox Field, ie.

    Do you like:

    Cookies?
    French Fries?
    Cheeseburgers?

    I have set each up with a Value of "YES"

    When submitting email notification, I have customized the form to send:

    Do you like to eat:

    Candy? {Candy:1.1}
    Hamburgers? {Hamburgers:1.2}
    Fries? {Fries:1.3}

    Hoping that that would send an email that puts a "YES" next to each item that have been selected in the checkbox form.

    That is not working at all. It actually puts the word "Candy" after every question.

    Please advise.

  2. By default the variable merge code for selection fields uses the user friendly option label because typically that is human readable and the value could be used for something programmatic and may not be user friendly.

    However, you can still return the value... it just takes a slight modification to the merge code.

    Change this:

    Candy? {Candy:1.1}
    Hamburgers? {Hamburgers:1.2}
    Fries? {Fries:1.3}

    To this:

    Candy? {Candy:1.1:value}
    Hamburgers? {Hamburgers:1.2:value}
    Fries? {Fries:1.3:value}

    And that should do the trick.
