    Dear JotForm,We like your forms and would like to purcha

    Asked by Ed on May 26, 2011 at 01:18 AM

    Dear JotForm,

    We like your forms and would like to purchase a solution to replace the current lead form on our website buysolarpanels.com.au.

    However, we have 1 requirement: Once the form has been filled out we currently use PHP logic to determine - based on Postcode - to which emails the form shall be forwarded (i.e. if the postcode starts with "10" or "11" the form gets forwarded to email X and email Y. If it starts with 12 it gets forwarded to email Z.)

    Are we able to use your forms like this?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    You can use Conditions feature to send emails to different email addresses depending on choices made on other questions. That's perfectly possible.

    Hi Ed

    Building upon what Aytekin stated and digging deeper into the possibilty of adding this functionality to your form, some googling led me to discover that there are several thousand postcodes in Australia. However, the need to have notifications directed based on just the first two digits of the codes should considerably lessen the number of conditions and rules required!

    Let's see how this might be accomplished. First of all, I noticed from one of the postcode files I downloaded that some postcodes in Australia contain three digits and others four. To avoid any mixups, have users from regions with three digit codes pad their code with a leading zero. For example, users from Barton in the Australian Capital Territory should enter 0221 instead of just 221. Otherwise, since only the first two digits are checked, how would one distiguish 221 from (say) 2214?

    Clone this example form I made and have a look at its conditions. Of course, to be operational, the email addresses would have to be replaced with real ones. Although not specific to your query, the "No such postcode!" message is an extra precaution against users entering incorrect codes.

    If you need additional explanation of how to setup such a form, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Hi again ED

    In case you were trying to post a message about my example form containing two "No such postcode!" and "Submit Form" fields, I corrected those. How on earth did they get like that!?
