I’m trying to solve the annoying “one email thread” (in gmail) for every message that comes via the same Gravity Form. I’m working through this problem for a client so he’s not missing responses.
Is there a simple solve for this that I’m missing?
My gut solution was to dynamically generate an arbitrary epoch time() value and pass that through to the From: field before the at ‘@’ symbol (in Notification settings).
I’m assuming this would avoid threading as each From: email address would be different. Something like firstname.lastname@example.org. Right now the emails, via Gmail at least, are being grouped by sender email address in spite of different subject lines.
Since the Notification settings within Gravity Forms don’t allow me to dynamically pass the epoch time() to an email’s prefix (before the @), I’m a bit stuck.
Anyone have advice on how to approach this problem?
p.s. Gmail’s solution is to turn off threading globally…so not exactly helpful as threading IS valuable.
Thanks so much!
