    I want the system to automatically create an e-mail for the auto-responder using 2 fields: The last name and the student ID  with the ending @reinhardt.edu

    I thoroughly tested the Full Name Field but failed to separate the first and last name fields within Conditions. The only way around this is to use 2 Textbox (Short Text Entry) fields - One for the first name and another for the last name. Then, use the UPDATE/CALCULATE FIELD Condition to concatenate them all.

    Logic:

    IF First Name, Last Name AND Student ID Number are FILLED OUT

    THEN INSERT Last Name + Student ID Number + @students.reinhardt.edu to the Reinhardt E-mail field

    Afterwards, just set the Reinhardt E-mail field as the recipient for your Autoresponder Email.
