I have the Webform 7.x-4.0-alpha6 version module enabled.

I have a Webform node with 20 form components. I added one email in Email Setting and I created the email template where I used the token: [submission:values].

Then I test the webform submitting a message. The problem is that [submission:values] print out the components values in a very plain way, no break line, no semicolon to make a difference between the title and the value for each component. Something like:

Name Jhon
Addresss Myaddress 12 
CP 19932

Having 20 component make the email completely unreadable

My question is: Is there a way (a token) to print them in a better way, at least adding a semicolon between the title and value, and making the title bold ? or putting the output in a table?

    Name: Jhon
    Addresss: Myaddress 12 
    CP: 19932

I know that I can print out the components in a separated way using the tokens: [webform:{component}-title] for the title and [webform:{component}-value] for the value

And then I can style them. But this is time wasting since I need all components to be shown in the email template

Update: I found this module but doesn't help me: http://drupal.org/project/webform_tokens

I haven't such problem, but I know, how to get special values from webform.

Webform tokens from submitted data. Includes the value and field label. Replace the "?" with the "Field Key". Append ":nolabel" for just the value.

So, you can use [submission:values:?:nolabel], where ? is field key of your component.

 Name: [submission:values:name:nolabel]
 Address: [submission:values:address:nolabel]

For me result is the same as for [submission:values]:

Name: Kate
Address: Moscow, Russia :)

Webform version: 7.x-4.0-alpha6 (7404).

Webform Tokens module is not needed.


If you are using HTML mail, labels are outputted via theme_form_element_label and look like <label>Title</label>\n.

You can override webform-submission.tpl.php. Copy this file to the theme for rendering the emails from admin/config/system/mailsystem.
To add : I suggest just to modify render array:

if ($format == 'html') {
  foreach ($renderable as $i => $item) {
    if (is_array($item) && !empty($item['#title'])) {
      $renderable[$i]['#title'] .= ':';

print drupal_render_children($renderable);

But you can output substitutions fully yourself.

    what you said is a valid option but I have to repeat this line set 20 times. I'm looking for a one line to output all the 20 components at once.

  • I think you are close but... I just use the dpm function for the $renderable array and there is no $item['#title'] inside. Maybe you are on the webform version 3. I'm using version 4 beta6. Look my capture: content.screencast.com/users/chefnelone/folders/Snagit/media/…

    Your code is right. It is just I'm nesting the webform components and I will need to change this line if (is_array($item) && !empty($item['#title'])) { to make it work.

Use Send e-mail as HTML option of webform.

This is available if you install the Mime Mail and Mail System modules, then go to admin/config/content/webform and set the Format to HTML.


Also note that if you're using a Grid component, you need to call that token with both the Field Key and then the question key. Grids are often used if you're doing a survey, for example and are asking people to rate something on a scale of 1-3, using radio buttons for each row, such as:

Sample Question:

Rank the following with 1=high, 3=lowest

|   Breweries   |  1  |  2  |  3  |
| Lighthouse    | [o] | [o] | [o] |
| Phillips      | [o] | [o] | [o] |
| Whistler      | [o] | [o] | [o] |

To print out the value of just question 2's answer, you'd use:
Beer Question 2 value was: [submission:values:my_beer_field:phillips]
