    How to get forms to send to certain emails

    Asked by Jessica  on May 11, 2017 at 01:54 PM

    I'm trying to create a time off request form for my company. What we would like to do is have the form get submitted to the employee's department manager. Is there a way to do that? 

    Thank you!

    The easiest way to set this up would be to add an email field to the form, then set up an autoresponder email to send to the address entered in that field:

    You could also create a list of managers, a dropdown field would probably work best and have users select their manager.  Based on that selection, conditionally send an email to the appropriate address:
