Hi there,

I found how to change the email subject herehere but would it also be possible to add a text + the value of a field?

Yes, you should be able to use a value submitted in a form field as the email subject by doing as follows.

Just put a shortcode like following in the "Custom Email Subject" field:
NOTE: You have to replace the fieldname with the actual name of the field in your form.

After you do so, the value entered in that field in form should appear as subject.

Let me know whether you have managed to set this for your form.
