Use data from a form field in the alert email title.

Use data from a form field in the alert email title.

edited 12/09/19 in Using Smartsheet

Setting up an alert system that sends out notifications when a form has been completed.

To streamline the process I would like to use a field from the form in the email title to differentiate between the emails rather than a range of emails with the same title.

Is that possible and if so, how?

Cheers

    Hi Roderick,

    Yes, it's possible!

    You'd use placeholders for that.

    Something like: New form submitted: {{Column Name For the Field you want to include in the subject}}

    More info: https://help.smartsheet.com/articles/2477796-dynamically-add-cell-data-in-the-subject-and-body-of-request-messages

    Did it work?

    Have a fantastic day!

    As a note: Placeholders will only work if the notification is being sent "Right Away".

  • Has this feature been disabled? I tried using placeholders and it doesn't seem to work.

    No! What happens? What are you trying to do?

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
