    How can I use form input data to determine where emails are sent?

    Asked by IanAshton on July 27, 2017 at 12:56 PM

    I want a form where a person inputs their email address, and the email address of the person intended to receive the request.  I then want the data in that form emailed to both parties.


    I've played around with the Notifications and Autoresponders, but can't get them to to do what I want.


    Basically in 'Notification __' I want 'Recipient Emails' to be able to populate from form data - can you do that?

    The recipient email address of the email notification is declared when you set up the email notification.


    If you want to have the recipient email to come from a form field in your form, then I suggest you set up an email autoresponder instead.

    Or, if you really want to use an email notification then I suggest you create a condition that will send the email notification to a value of an email field in your form.
