How to use smart tags

Smart Tags are a very handy feature that comes with Everest Form. The purpose of the smart tag is to dynamically replace the static information. For e.g Here is a smart tag {admin_email} that can be used in the Email settings To Address to pull the site admin email. In this article, we will show you how to make your Email Subject dynamic based on users input.

Let’s say you have a form with following fields for your site.

  1. Name
  2. Email
  3. Product Name
  4. Subject
  5. Message

Now every time a user comes to your site, fill up the form and submit it, the admin receives an email with all these details. The subject by default for the email would be New Form Entry. This is not very helpful and admin has to open up the email to know the details of the entries.

Now with the help of a smart tag. You can make your email subject dynamic by utilizing the Product Name field and Subject Field. To use the smart tag.

  • Click on the < > icon on the side of the Email Subject field. It will open a small scrollable box with all the appropriate fields in your form that can be used as a smart tag.
  • Now click on the field in the box that you would like to use as smart tag and the corresponding smart tag code will be automatically copied to the Email Subject Field.
  • For this article case, I have used Product Name Field and Subject field. Your new email subject would be New Form Entry + Product Name + Subject

This subject is more elaborative and appropriate.

Now if some user fills up the form with following details as shown in the image below.

The email subject will be New Form Entry Table Lamp Charger Issue.

This will help admin to find out which product the email is related to and what the issue is with a glance on their inbox without the need to open the email.
