    @ms4274

    I am not sure if I have understood your question. Do you mean to ask you want to send email to an address which comes from user input?

    Request you to please elaborate your question.

    Thanks,

    Sorry -- in reality I want a department administrator to be able to tell a new hire to fill out a personal information form. After the new hire clicks on Submit, the email notification should go to this department administrator. My problem is that I have 25 department administrators. How could I pre-populate the email address in the notification settings based on the department administrator who sends the request to the new hire? Hope that makes sense. Thanks.

    Yes, I have understood your requirement now.

    Actually there are two possibilities to achieve your requirement:

    1. Pre-populate the email field with URL parameters. Refer this guide:  Prepopulating the fields to your JotForm via URL parameters

    2. Create a list of administrators in your form and then based on the selected value you can send email by using conditions. Please refer this guide: How to send to a specific email address based on a selection

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks,
