    Hey!

    Is there a widget that allows the form user to add multiple emails? Like the Dynamic Fields widget but for emails. We are trying to have users input email address and then have an email be automatically sent to those email addresses.

     

    Thanks!

    I will forward your request to our second level, if it is approved you will be notified via this thread when it gets implemented.

    Meanwhile, you could add a sub-label in a Text Box field to specify that a user can add more than one email address separated by a comma and space "user1@domain.com, user2@domain.com".

    In that way you create an email autoresponder, so it will be sent to the email addresses added on the field.

    I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. If you just want uesrs to enter many mails, you can simply use Dynamic Fields for it. If you want to create autoresponder for multiple fields and send mails to all entered addresses, this would be a potential gift for spammers, who would be able to enter lots of mails and have messages sent from our server. I'm also afraid such feature can be hard to implement as a widget, due to some technical reasons.

    Please try to specify what exactly do you want to achieve - maybe we'll find a better way to do it.
