    How to send email to address filled in an email field?

    Asked by Roel1985 on January 16, 2014 at 01:47 AM


    Is it possible to get a email notification by filling in the email form?

    So normally when you press SEND then the email form will send to me. Now i like to see when someone filled in an emailadres that the email will also be send to him.


    Thank you.

    Hello Roel1985,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly.

    Do you want to send submission emails to the email address which is filled in an email address form field?

    You can achieve your requirement by simply adding an auto responder in your form. Here you can set your form's email field as "Recipient Email" address. This guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder

    It is also possible to send submission email based on any condition you set. You may like to check this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/167-How-to-send-to-a-specific-email-address-based-on-a-selection

    Do you want to send email as soon as the user input an email address in email field of your form?

    Unfortunately, we do not have such features. The submission emails are sent from the server side when the form is submitted. 

    To achieve your requirement you will have to download your form's source code and custom code to send emails. We do not have any in built feature to do this task.

    Hope this helps. 

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!

    I thought I did this by your instructions above but it's not working, the form is: https://form.jotform.com/62594194037158

    I created an autoresponder, and under "Recipient Email" chose "Contact Email." Since this is a referral form, when Person A enters the email address of Person B in the Contact Email field, then hits Submit, Person B will receive an email, saying Person A referred them to our company. I hope this makes sense, am I missing something? Currently, the email address entered in the Contact Email field doesnt get an email when the form is submitted.
