    How to set a field on the form as a recipeint email address in a notification?

    Thank you for responding.  I am implementing these steps; however, I have a new problem.  I have recently sent up some conditions to automatically populate the advisor’s e-mail address when the student selects the name of the major they would like to declare.   I was wondering how to I incorporate the “Advisor e-mail” field into the “Advisor notification?  The recipient e-mails field only allows me to add e-mail address instead of designating a field to pull this information from?  I have included a screenshot below of the field I am referring to.

    In order to set a field on the form as the recipient email address, it is required to use an auto-responder instead of a notification. Unfortunately, for notifications, it is not allowed to use the field names as the Recipient email. Please try replacing the notification with an autoresponder so that it should be working fine.

    Please get back to us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.
