Is there a way to pull the data from an email notification and insert it into a form instance mult-line text box?
If you don’t know if it’s possible, can you point me in the direction of how email notification are generated and stored in mysql.June 16, 2011 at 10:46 pm #5763

All of the data for a notification is in the instance. If you want a notification replicated in an instance the best thing to do would be to use a set field with a formula that reproduces the notification. We do not support pulling information straight from the PerfectForms database.June 17, 2011 at 6:45 pm #5766
Thanks this will work. Is there a function that will allow a “return” or “indent” to the formula?
” ” (space)
” ” (space)
indent or return
So the notification would look like this in a multi-line text box.

Here’s how I handle adding a newline/return to a multi-line text input:
• Crete a sedond, hidden multi-line text input field, call it “Return Text Input” or something
• In the text for this input, just hit the Return key
Now in your formula you can do
Return Text Input
This way you won’t have to try to rely on spaces to get a newline in your multi-line text inputs.June 27, 2011 at 4:54 pm #5788
I like it. Good idea! ThanksJune 27, 2011 at 4:55 pm #5789
Glad you like it. I’m also glad you could understand my post with all those misspellings. Yikes!
