    email send to receive showing data and field description

      Lifecycle designer 8, when sending a form via email to outlook it sends the data only in  xml format without the field description. Is there a way to set the email send to send with the field definitions or as a whole form? at the moment it arrives as follows<br /><?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> <br />- <form1><br />  <TextField1 /> <br />  <TextField2 /> <br />  <TextField3 /> <br />  <DropDownList2 /> <br />  <TextField5 /> <br />  <CheckBox1>0</CheckBox1> <br />  <CheckBox2>0</CheckBox2> <br />  <CheckBox3>0</CheckBox3> <br />I need to be able to see the text field name as was in the form.<br />Any help appreciated

          Those are the field names as they appear in the form ..... you can change the field names to be what you want. Conversely if you want to submit the entire PDF you can change the submit option to PDF (if you are using the submit by email button you will have to change that option in the XML of the template by default it submits xml). Under the View menu choose XML Source. A new tab will appear beside the Design View. High light the submit button and click on the XML Source tab. The area where your button is defined should be highlighted. scroll down in the field name node until you see <submit format="xml" (this is a child of the event node). Change the xml to pdf and clcik on Design view. It will ask you if you want to save your changes. Say yes! Note that you should note modify the xml template unless you know what you are doing. Also this change will only apply to this form, if you drop a new email button from the library it will be set up the old way.<br /><br />Hope that helps

            But bear in mind that users with the free Reader won't be able to
            submit PDF form unless you jump through extra hoops. It is almost
            certainly better to work with the data.
