Having empty fields and Form Settings title/description show up in notification

  1. Is it possible to have a field label show up in the admin and user notification emails even if it hasn't been filled in by the user? At present it appears that only completed fields show up in the confirmation emails. My client has a will planning form with a selection of fields and including number fields. Although these fields are not required, my client would still like the non completed field labels to show up along with the completed ones in the confirmation email so it can act as a complete record of all the options. Is there way to do this without placing a 'required' rule on all the fields?

    Also, is it possible to have the form title and description in the 'Form Settings' section appear in the notification emails?

    Check out this page: http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Merge_Tags

    It includes the following for showing all fields:

    :empty
    Specify whether to show fields for which no value was submitted. Example: {all_fields:empty}

    Also you should be able to use the merge tags for form title in the body of the notification e-mail as well if you would like, but you would have to add that in manually above the all fields merge tag.

    All my best!

  3. Thanks David. That's worked a treat! Is it possible to also have the form description show up by using a merge tag? The confirmation email is only showing the form title when I use {form_title}. I was hoping it would also include that too. Thanks, Phil

    Sorry, that's one merge tag we don't currently have. I'll bring it up with the developers.
