Data Fields not populating in email message body

I have a form with 2 views.  1 view is a list, the user clicks on a record in the list and it opens the items view.  The items view pulls in some data from the list view but the user is to enter specific data for 2 other fields.  I do not want these fields saved back to the database but I do want them to display in the email notification.  I can get the items from the list view to display in the email, just not the 2 fields they fill in.

 

What am I missing?

Re: Data Fields not populating in email message body

Hi Carlar, 


 


Will it be possible to specify what does the workflow do, and also how does it start ?

Re: Data Fields not populating in email message body

I got an undeliverable when I replied back so am responding here.

 

It is a very basic workflow.  The workflow starts by the office clicking on Send Email (once they have filled in the 2 fields).  The email body looks like this:

 

Trudy,

I am using a static list of values for the drop down items.

Hi Carlar,

 

you can create DataFields in the Workflow and at the moment you start the workflow you send the information from the view to the Workflow DataFields.

And in the Workflow you can use those DataFields for the E-Mail Body or something else.

 

I do the same in one of our workflows and this works very good.

 

Kind Regards

Alexander Christ
