    We have a questionnaire for our employees to fill out and we want them to put in the email of their supervisor so that when they hit submit it will send the email directly to their supervisor. Is there a way to do setup the Notification so that the "recipient email" looks at the "supervisor email" for where to send it. Right now it looks like we have to manually type it in. We have too many variables here to use the dropdown method. Please advise.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Jotform Support. Instead of Notifications, we would recommend you to use the Autoresponder email. It matches more with what you want to achieve. We will provide an example with the steps and screenshots below:

    We inserted an Email field on the form and name it ‘Supervisor email’1650636660_6262b77406dbc_email superviso

    Since we want the email to go the supervisor’s email address, we added the field to the Autoresponder following the steps and screenshots below:

    First, create the Autoresponder email by following the steps and screencast below:

    • IForm Builder, in the orange navigation bar at the top of the page, click on Settings.
    • In the menu on the left side of the page, click on Emails.
    • Now, click on + Add an Email.
    • Next, select Autoresponder Email.
    • And Save1650637629_6262bb3d77eaa_new autorespond


    1. Hover the mouse over the Autoresponder and click on the pencil of the Autoresponder
    2. Select the Recipient tab
    3. Click on downward arrow
    4. Select the Supervisor’s Email field
    5. Select Save1650638036_6262bcd42c269_recipient email

    Now, an Autoresponder Email will be sent to the supervisor's email inserted in your form.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
