    Hello there,

    Are you able to create a text field on a form in which the user/visitor can edit before sending?
    Example, such as the form on this page: http://sierraclub.bc.ca/take-action-centre/cant-afford-site-c/

    Also, are you able to select certain email addresses which a form can be sent to based on a postal code the user/visitor enters in the form? 

    Thank you so much, 

    - Amanda Jean

    If what you mean is that there is a text area in a form and then the user can edit the pre-filled text in it, yes that can be possible. Just add a long text entry field in your form, then click the Properties button > Advanced tab > Default Value.

    For sending an email based on the postal code that the user that enters, that is also possible. By using a regular text field (short text entry), you can create a condition to which email alert should be triggered for sending. This means that you will also need to create multiple email alerts in the form.
