notifications question

  1. Here's how I think it should work:

    User completes and submits a form

    The user receives a message or e-mail or is redirected to another page or some combination of all of these

    An e-mail is sent to whoever I setup under Administrator notifications that a form has been submitted

    The part I don't get is just exactly what is contained in the notification? Do they get an attachment containing the form data? Or is that what insert form field does?

  2. The notification content is whatever you set it to be. When you setup Notifications there is the Message Body field for the Notification. This is where you configure what content will be in the notification email. There is a drop down with form field value variables that you can use in the Notification email. These variables are replaced with the form field value when the form is submitted.

    One of the options is an {all_fields} token. Inserting this into your Notification body via the Insert Form Fields drop down will output a nicely formatted table that contains all of the form field data submitted by the form.

    There are no file attachments with notification, only content within the email itself.

  3. I get it. The {all_fields} token is probably the way to go with a contact form. For more complex forms, I'll have them login to the site to get the data.

    Thanks,

  4. I notice that this post is a few yrs old now but Is there a way now for the notification email to include an attachment that the person filling out the form can send?
    Thanks
