Shortcode in email for State/Province Dropdown Question Type displaying numbers

Hi- On the registration form, I’ve created a question named, State Licensed, and selected ‘State/Province Dropdown’ as the Question Type. When exporting the registrant list to CSV, this field is displayed correctly as a list of state names.

When trying to display this question in an email using the shortcode, [RECIPIENT_ANSWER_* State Licensed], the numeric option value is displayed instead of the state name. For example, 37 will show instead of New York.

<optgroup label="United States">
<option value="35">New Jersey</option>
<option value="36">New Mexico</option>
<option value="37">New York</option>
<option value="38">North Carolina</option>

Please let me know if there is a way to display the state names.

Thank you!

That’s a bug and there’s a fix in progress, which should make it into the next release of EE4.

Thanks, Josh. Will find a workaround until the next release.
