    Adding Send To A Friend on form

    Asked by canafishdrown on December 25, 2012 at 02:04 AM

    I have a contact form and wondered if it possible to add a Send To A Friend bit.

    How I would like it, is for the question to be asked on a check box and if they say YES, then another box appears at the bottom with the Send To Friend stuff, with fields as a Required functionality.

    If they say NO, then they can just submit as normal and not be affected by the Required functionality.

    Hope that ALL makes sense.

    Thanks for asking.

    Yes, this can be done by including the extra fields and setting up a show / hide condition to only show those fields when the box is checked. Additionally, an email condition would need to be created to send an auto-response to the friend when the said box is checked.

    To get an idea of how this would work, select the "Send this submission to a friend" box in this form and submit it. (Use a fictitious address like user@example.com in the first two email fields and enter your own in the "Friend's E-mail" field.)

    The best way to understand how the conditions have been setup is to clone the form.

    If you would like further assistance with this, we'd be happy to help.

    Thanks for the clone.

     

    Is there anyway of letting the 'Friends' info appear AFTER the box is checked to Send To A Friend???

    Hello canafishdrown.  When you say "Is there anyway of letting the 'Friends' info appear AFTER the box is checked to Send To A Friend???" are you referring to the thank you page, or is it the notification/autoresponse, or would it be something else?

    Thanks.

    @canalfishdrown

    If JavaScript is enabled in your browser, the friend fields in my demo should only appear when the "Send this submission to a friend" box is checked.

    What message do you see when you click this link?
