Email notifications: Reorder sections/fieldsin {all_fields} merge tag?

  1. MissKitty

    I love the format and ease of the all-fields merge tag in admin and user notification emails.

    Normally, when I use all-fields merge tag, the emails mimic the order of sections and fields in the order shown on the form itself.

    I've never had a problem before today.

    However, today I created a form, and created a standard user email notification and admin notification, inserting {all-fields} in the email body.
    Both notification emails show the sections and fields out of order, in no particular logic.

    I searched this forum on ordering fields in the email notifications, and have yielded posts advising....
    -create a custom html responder form, manually insert each of the sections and styles, and manually format/style each of these sections and fields - that's not ideal, in this case.
    -use the {all-fields} helper to reorder....what is this?

    PLEASE provide a user-friendly method for simply re-ordering the all-fields merge content!

    Thanks in advance.

    You can't re-order all_fields. You would have to manually place each field into the notification e-mail in the order that you want it in. All my best!

    Thanks David - any idea why the fields are appearing in a different order?

    Can you check to see if the values are showing up in the order of field ID numbers?
