  2. We are planning on adding an option to Notifications in Gravity Forms v1.5.3 to send emails as Plain Text instead of HTML. Until then you have to use the workaround described in the link Kevin linked to above.

  3. I use Tender App for client support, and even with the workarounds here on the forum, the HTML that lands in the email makes Gravity Forms unusable for this purpose. Is there another work around or a prerelease available. I just bought the developer license for this very purpose.

  4. The only work around is to edit the common.php file and find the line that sets the sendmail as text/html and change it to text/plain and that will send the emails as plain. That change will impact ALL notifications sent from Gravity Forms.

    We will be adding a plain text option in the v1.5.3 release.

  5. I made that change, then it sends in plain text, but is still fill of code.

  6. Not sure if this is the same issue...

    But how do I get GF to send a respondable email?

  7. @tadgill What is in your notification? If you are using the {ALL_FIELDS} merge code in your notification then that outputs HTML... so it's still going to have code.

    If you change the emails to plain text by editing the code you can't use the {ALL_FIELDS} merge code, you will have to manually create your notification email from scratch. The {ALL_FIELDS} merge code is a helper merge code that outputs an HTML table.

    When we implement the plain text email option we will also be enabling the use of the all fields variable so it outputs as plain text if plain text email is selected. That is one of the reasons this feature hasn't been added yet, it's more complex than just changing the header of the email to plain text, we have to think through the entire workflow and how it impacts things. So it's not a quick simple change. But we will be adding it as a feature in the 1.5.3 release.

    @ejarvi I'm not sure what you are referring to as far as a respondable email?

  8. Oops. Nevermind, I figured it out. I set the From field as myself instead of the sender drop down.

    Thanks

    Been waiting for plaintext emails for a while. Any guess when v1.5.3 might be available?

  10. This feature will be in v1.6 (we aren't releasing it as v1.5.3 anymore because it's too big) which should be available as a beta in August with a final release to follow. It's in development as we speak.

    i'm looking forward to seeing this feature for some reasons:

    1. all form submissions are routed to WHMCS as tickets, and they have a lot br tags in every field rows

    2. need to use {ALL_FIELDS} code since i have a form with many fields, it's hard to add one by one.

    3. And one problem, when i have a checkbox, there's no way to add just one checkbox field name to display all checked items in email notification. In "insert form fields"..it only displays all checkbox item names and i also have to add one by one...

    I did that by seperating every items with commas:

    Product: {A:8.7}, {B:8.8}, {C:8.9}, {D:8.10}

    So for example: if a checkbox has 4 items, A, B, C, D with A, C checked

    In my email it will display: Product: A, , C,

  12. @myintamits in Gravity Forms v1.6 there will be a merge tag for the checkbox field that will output all of the selected values as a comma delimited list when used.

    Still excited to send text emails... could really use this.

  16. It's built in to 1.6 which is slated for release next week. If you'd like to try it now, feel free to install the 1.6rc5 release and test it out. The final version of the plugin will be out very soon.
