If I am setting up a "send an e-mail after submission" condition, can I have that email sent to the individual that filled out the form first?

    I am creating a "Time Off Request Form" for my department. After the individual requesting time off fills out the form and presses submit, our department manager receives a copy of the form. I have been able to include the edit field so that the manager can go back into the form, fill in the "managersonly" code and approve or deny the request. I would then like for her to be able to press submit again, but this time the form (response) would go to the individual requesting the time off. I have begun by setting up a "send an e-mail submission" condition and  so that when the "date received" field "is filled" (by the manager), then send "time of request form submission" email to "------". This "email to" is where I am having difficulty as I am not sure what I have to input. Every individual who will be using this form has a different email and although I tried {torecipientemail} this does not work. Any ideas?

    Hi Gonzaga,

    If you want to send a copy of the email notification to the person who filled out your form, you can use the form Autoresponder. Please see this guide.

    Thanks!

    Thanks but unfortunately this does not solve the issue. When I do as you suggest, the individual receives a copy (and the manager receives the submission) when he/she presses submit. HOWEVER, I would only like this individual to receive a copy once the manager has filled out the bottom portion of the form and then press submit (therefore the individual requesting time off only gets a copy of the response to his/her vacation request). Help please!

    A second autoresponder is not possible when someone edits the submission data. But I have found a workaround for you:

    - Add a hidden field with the name of the Sender in the form. Also add one for the Email addresss to in the Reply-To field

    -Create a second notification rather than an autoresponder, but we will set it up as if it were one so, rather than going to a recipient, it will go to what  the Email variable for the Field To receive a copy of this form, please input your email:  which in this case is {toReceive17}

     

    -Then Stablish a conditional logic as you described above
