    How to send email only when certain column is chosen in an input table?

    Asked by WiltonMill on July 27, 2017 at 11:29 PM

    -send email only when certain column is chosen in an input table.

    Hello, I want to send a notification email only when a certain column in an input table has a check.

    The table has two columns labelled "Satisf" and "Unsat".

    The logic currently is

    IF (table field)

    STATE (Contains)

    TARGET (Value)

    VALUE (Unsat)

    The example logics I've seen on this thread have a STATE of "is Equal to". I don't know what the functionality of the Contains state is in regards to the input table columns. As it stands right now simply putting the VALUE as the name of column of the input table, for which it sends the notification email when someone answers in that column, does not work.

    Thank you!

    It is possible by setting up some conditions on the form. It is required to copy the value of the selected field from the Input table field by setting up another condition. I have tested it on a form using an Input table field and a textbox field on the form.

    I now setup two conditions on the form to copy the Input table field value to the Textbox and another condition to send the email based on the Satisfaction field. Please see the screencast below that can help you with setting up the conditions.

    Please take a look at the demo form and see how it works. Please feel free to clone it to your account.
