Re faxing via email - the subject line of the email is displayed in the comments section of the fax cover page. Is there any way to also have the text of the email printed in the comments section of the cover page?

Hi Al,

Unfortunately, we don't have this functionality yet. But, I'd like to see it and I'm sure others do as well.

Right now, the entire body of the email is omitted as you can only populate the Cover Page body using the Subject line of the email message.

I've submitted this to our product team.

Community: If anyone else would like to see this please +1 this post (I did.)

Can you provide an update on this?  I don't understand why it's so difficult and taking so long to implement such a feature.  I won't be converting my trial to paid until RC has this.

Why is this so difficult to get done? What I put in the subject line on the email should end up in a "subject" field on the cover page and what I put in the body should end up in the note field! Many times I just need to send a fax with a tiny bit of info and I end up having to create a word doc and attach it just to get the info faxed when it could have all been on nothing more than the cover page!!!

More than 4 years & multiple requests and not added makes it appear RC simply does not wish to add & therefore doesn't care about losing customers over such.  Spoke with support who argued they had it, but when they sent text faxes and viewed they admitted they only had it with "words in the subject line" & that was limited to "about 300 characters".

Please add this simple functionality.
The body of the email should be the body of the cover sheet.
the sent fax should look something like an email.

date, time;

body of message;
