    How to send an automated email when a form field is filled?

    Asked by Acadian on October 16, 2013 at 08:19 AM

    Good morning!


    Concerning the form below. Can an automated message be sent to a person referred to our NEMSA program. When the circle for NEMSA is filled, an email address of the person referred will be added to the form before submission. Can this email address send an automated message to prompt them to sign-up for our Academy?


    Thanks so much.

    Hello Acadian,

    If I understand your requirement correctly, you want to send an automated email to the referred person whose email address will be added (Form Field: E-mail:). This email is to be sent only when the field (I'd like to refer someone for:*) has selected value (NEMSA - ($200)**). Is that correct?

    If yes, you can add conditions to your form to check if the checkbox NEMSA - ($200)** is selected and based on that you can send an auto responder to the referred person's email address.

    This guide should help you understand how conditional email can be sent based on the selection value of a checkbox/dropdown:  http://www.jotform.com/help/167-How-to-send-to-a-specific-email-address-based-on-a-selection The same logic applies on the auto responder as well which is mentioned in the above guide.

    Do let us know if this is the functionality you want to achieve in your form and I will be happy to assist you.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!
