    Thank you for the above, although I would like to know how you can self populate the managers email address from the form submitted as I am creating a form for a large organisation and the line managers email address will always be different?

    Is there anyway to pull data/content from the form?

    The only way to prepopulate the fields is through the form URL: https://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters 

    It's not possible to prefill the fields with information submitted on another or the same form. Now, if you have a long list you may use a drop down to list the emails. We only have a widget that loads data from a spreadsheet, but the users will need to search and select the manager's email address manually, here's the link to the widget so you may have a look on it: https://www.jotform.com/help/442-How-to-Use-the-Spreadsheet-to-Form-Widget 

    Thanks.
