    Conditional Email notification based upon Submit button choice

    Asked by sjakubik on January 17, 2013 at 02:16 PM

    I have easily been able to set up conditional email notification based upon the selection of certain form fields. However, I would also like to be able to set some up based upon which Submit button is selected.

    Example:  We have two submit buttons; one if paying by cash in person, one if paying via credit card online.

                  If they select the cash option, we would like an email to be sent to the bookkeeper alerting her that person x will be bringing her a payment.  

    I have not been able to figure out a way to do this.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I am sorry to inform you, but there is no way to set the conditions based on the submit buttons via our form builder.

    However, you can add a simple Radio Button field for your payment options, and then trigger conditions based on that field.

    Note that you will need to create an additional Email Notification for your second 'Send Email' condition.

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