I have a webform set up as a Contact page that creates a civi contact and activity and assigns it. I have a scheduled reminder send out a "Thanks for contacting us...we'll get back to you asap..." email after the activity is created. There's an issue where Webform doesn't allow the Communication Format to be set and we use that in how we format our Email Greeting. We have Formal communication preference set as default option in Civi but when Webform creates the contact for some reason that default doesn't get set and so when the contact record is viewed there's no communication format at all.
What are the options to fix this? Can Webform be updated to be able to set the communication format?
