I've read a lot about this online and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

  • I have created a custom field.
  • In my form I set that custom field to a variable. I've confirmed in the Chrome Dev Console that the field (a hidden text box) is showing up and has a value of the variable.
  • The notifications panel says that I can use custom variables for the subject. However, it doesn't seem to matter it continues to display the variable tags and name e.g. {my_custom_variable}.

Any idea what I could be doing wrong?


Make sure that you have the custom field in your composer template as well as your custom template. Otherwise, Freeform doesn't bring that field into the notification context.
