    Hi gabizon437

    Thanks for your query. This can be done by creating a conditional email alert. The form must include a field for the user to enter the email address of the person to whom the submission is to go and, assuming the user is to get a copy of the submission too, an autoresponder will also need to be created. By default, you will receive email notifications of any submissions made via forms you create. So, there's no need to create any alerts for yourself.

    Below is a partial screenshot of a form I have created for demonstration purposes:

    To clone the form, right-click the image, click "Copy link address" and paste it into the URL: text box in the New Form Wizard and click "Continue".


    How the Form was Made

    The fields were inserted, set to Required and their labels edited. Then, in addition to the default notification, the autoresponder and extra notification were created. user@example.com was entered as the Recipient E-mail for the extra notification. (It need not be an actual address but it must be in the correct format.)

    Then the following "Send an e-mail after submission" condition was setup:


    See that tag? Currently, such tags cannot be used in the Recipient E-mail field of the Reply-To and Recipient Settings page of notifications. However, since they can be used in the Conditions, a workaround was used where a condition was set on the Send to Friend field.

    Finally, some formatting was applied to the form via injected CSS to increase the space between the user's name and email and those of the friend.

    That's pretty much it.

    Incidentally, originally both of the notifications had identical questions and answers but I changed them.

    If you need clarification on anything, please feel free to ask.
