What in the world are tokens and what are they used for?

A token is the code that "tells" the form to display the what the user types into a particular field   For example, if you want your email to say "Dear Barack" instead of "Dear Student", you would use this token in the Email Template:

Dear [submission:values:first_name:key]

(first_name is the field key for First Name on my form.)   

You can display the date with [current-date:long].  (No field key needed). 

To display all the field label and values:  [submission:values] 

How to insert a token in an email

  1. Place your cursor where you want the token in the email.  Then click TOKEN VALUES.  You will see a list of different types of tokens.
     
  2. Click "Submissions" at the bottom of the list.  You will see a list of tokens.  Click on the one you want.  It will be inserted where you placed your cursor above.  If ther is a  "?" in the token, replace the "?" with the field key of the component.
  3. Some useful components: 

To display the component label and value:
 [submission:values:?]   Replace the "?" with the field key of the component.
 
To display the component value:
[submission:values:? :key]   Replace the "?" with the field key of the component.

To display the component value:
 [submission:values:?:nolabel]  Replace the "?" with the field key of the component.

 Here is an example. I want to display the value for my "First Name" field. The field key is  "first_name".

[submission:values:first_name] will display the component label and value: First Name: Barack
[submission:values:first_name:key] will display: Barack
[submission:values:first_name:nolabel]  will display the component value only:  Barack
