  4. The contents are missing in the preview


There are some limitations of the Sender Address Field. If the content is out of the limitation, it will be ignored when preview.


The followings are the limitation of the Sender Address field.

  1. The max number of characters is 255.
  2. The max row is three.
  3. For each row, there is a max length and the content can only shown in with this length. For the max length, please refer to the following image, the content in one row cannot exceed this length.
  4. If the content in one row exceeds the max length, the exceeded content will automatically move to the next row.
  5. If the last letter of the row exceed the max length, the whole last word will automatically move to the next row.
  6. The limitation cannot be changed in master template. If the customer need to exceed the limitation, they need to hardcode the sender details directly into their form.
