    Asked on July 19, 2013 at 01:46 PM

    Hello, I'm trying to find a way to email random raffle ticket numbers when a person purchases them
    through my JotForm (which I will integrate with PayPal). 

    I searched existing JotForms, but found nothing close.

    I realize this is a specialized coding requirement. But can I hire anyone at JotForm to do it, or
    would you be able to refer me to a coding expert who would be able to do the above, using JotForm?

    Thank you.

    Hi, You can send a random numbers to the user who submit the form by adding a hidden - unique ID field.

     

    Set an index value

    So, on Email, the user will receive a unique number.

    You can use this number to integrate with paypal.

    Hope this information helps you.

    Thank you.

    Hello again dinesh,

    When I submit the form (and put another of my email addresses in it) the only email I receive
    is to my JotForm email address -- not to the email address I typed into the form.

    I understood you to say that this form will send the random number to the person filling out the form? That's what I need it to do. Please advise.

    Here is the form:

    Hi,

    This seems to be a different issue than your original topic which was resolved already.

    May I please suggest that you create a separate thread for the new question.

    You can do it here http://www.jotform.com/contact

    Provide as much details as you can, and we will attend to it asap.

    Thanks.

    Hi jonathan, Actually, it's the exact same issue I started with. I thought my issue was resolved, but the form did not function as it was suposed to. But thank you for your response -- and I will start a new thread.

    Hi,

    Thank you. I re read the initial messages... and you maybe right also.

    BUT If you look at the topic subject, it was about random raffle ticket sending to email. Which I think was resolved since a colleague was able to show how to, and it does goes to your email address.

    The new issue seems to be that,-- it wasn't sending an autoresponder email to a person using the form.

    I will monitor your new thread created for this so I can attend to it at once.

     

    best regards,
