UserForm to send out unique/dynamic email subjects?

We are using the UserForm module. Is there a way for the form e-mail subject to contain user submitted data? We need each e-mail that is submitted using an online form to contain a unique subject so the form response does not get incorrectly grouped. (When using Google's Gmail "Conversation View", emails of the same subject/topic are grouped together)

If someone know's of a workaround, please let us know. That would be awesome!

In code/UserDefinedForm.php, on line 592, edit this:


You could do something like this:

$email->setSubject($recipient->EmailSubject." - ".$submittedFields->find('Name', 'EditableTextField1')->Value);

In order to find the field you want to insert, you'll have to do this a few lines above:

print_r($submittedFields); die();

And do a test submit of your form to get the raw data and pick out the name of the field you want to use in the email subject.

I tried to make the changes you suggested, however, I was not able to get it to work...Do you have any other ideas? :-/

Well, why didn't it work? Paste your code here and let's see, and don't forget to mention which form field you are trying to use in the subject.
