    Conditions Wizard to send email - is there a negative modifier or can you add DOES NOT END with?

    Asked by postmeit on October 08, 2013 at 10:08 AM

    Building a condition usng your wizard for sending an email based on a field entry.

     

    I want to filter anything other than that ending with 01

     

    On your conditions wizard I want to add a condition that DOES NOT end with 01

     

    You have a statement which is ENDS with but no NOT END with 

     

    Is there a way to use a negative modifier such as ENDS with [!1]

     

    Or can you think of a way to achieve the same.

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Unfortunatelly there is no NOT END with condition.

    BUT I think you can offset this by using the END With -- that is by creating condition END With 1,2,3,4 to 9th.

    If you include End with zero(0), you actually need to create only 10 END With condition emails.

    Example:

     IF destination ENDS With "1" Send message to [email]

     IF destination ENDS With "2" Send message2 to [email2]

     IF destination ENDS With "3" Send message3 to [email3]

    .
    .
    .

     IF destination ENDS With "0" Send message0 to [email0]

    Inform us if I did not understand your inquiry correctly.
    Thanks

    Hi Jonathan - Yes you understood fine

     

    But it will not work in this case as I have another condition before which must be met as well.

    So it is IF field 1 = Dollar

     

    and does NOT end with 02,03,04,05  (which a singular negative modifier [!1] would permit )

     

    Then send message 1 to email abc@

    As I can't see how using either the Any/All will work ?

     

     

    Do you not permit wildcards in the subission strings? (or regex)

    Oh should have pointed out am already using 3 If conditions above but need to add the second criteria for each and want to avoid having to create 6 + separate condition rules.

     

    If there was "does NOT end" with enable it would be easy and less rules needed.

    We can forward this to our developers as a feature request, but I request you to open a separate thread for that. You can start from here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/answer.php?

    You can use my colleague suggestions to use the "Ends With". It's a two or three way process but should work for your purpose.

    Thanks

    Thanks Welvin,

    Can I use a wildcard ? You didn't say..

    Yes can use Ends WITH but that means would need to create several more times the number of conditional email rules to achieve the same thing.

    What would be really useful is to have an option for a mandatory condition AND any of several Options.

     

    So If field is DOLLAR

    AND

    Colour is BLUE

    OR

    Colour is RED

     

    ANY/ALL is not flexible enough!

     

    PS Have added as a feature request

    Thanks.

     

    For your info 

    To solve it now I have to create 12 separate conditions.

    If that was a feature it could be done with 4 conditions. Which is a lot less to maintain debug or change.

     

    Ideally would like to be able to case switch so could create a single rule!

     

    Thanks
