    What does the recipient email section of the autoresponder settings mean?

    Asked by GoFlex on May 18, 2017 at 11:00 AM

    Hi there!

    I finished building a form and the auto responder area, there is a drop down for Recipient E-mail. But all the of the drop down options are questions from my form. I don't understand what this section does. 


    Thank you,

    Please note that autoresponder emails are naturally confirmation emails sent to the submitter of a form, and for that it would need an email field in the form to use as the recipient. This is why the "Recipient E-mail" section provides you with a dropdown menu with all your form fields listed, so that you select the email field from them.

    I hope this helps. If you need further assistance please let us know. Thank you.
