    How to send submission emails based on answer on form field?

    Asked by BellriverIT on February 14, 2017 at 12:53 AM

    Hi,

    We use a JotForm for our supervisors to request orders for additional supplies that arise during construction, and I've been asked if there's a way to allow the supervisors to receive a copy of the request.

    Is there a way to either (a) copy in the supervisor based on the supervisor name or (b) send an email to an email address selected or entered in a JotForm?
