    When user clicks link and edits form it does not send another, updated

    Asked by nmhgmarketing on October 09, 2012 at 03:09 PM

    When user clicks link and edits form it does not send another, updated autoresponder email. Is there something we need to do to make that happen?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This is done on purpose to prevent mailing Autoresponders when you edit submission from a form Submissions page. Unfortunately, there is no way to change that behavior.

    However, the form owner should receive updated Email Notification.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    nmhgmarketing, i had a similar concern a few months ago.  as a workaround, i used the email field found in the form as one of the recipients in the email notifcations  e.g., {email1}.  everytime the user edits his/her submission, a confirmation email was also being sent to the specified email address.

     

    so far its working ok.  have received more than a thousand submissions using this method.

    Hello,

    I would like to have more information on the method of felipe_sasa.

    I tried to create a new notification but i can't use the code {email#} in the field "recipients".

    Can you explain me in detail the method ?

    Thank you !

    @7artstudio

    The box will not accept the tag e.g. {email3} since it is not a valid email address. The trick there is to append that tag after your email address separated by comma. Example: email@jotform.com, {email3}

    Here's a guide for that:

    1. While on your form, Click Setup & Embed then Email Alerts

    2. Open Notification, then click on Reply-To and Recipient Settings

    3. Enter it on the Recipient E-mail box.


    Thanks!
