Is there a way to trigger an auto-email other than using the Submit button?

    Hi,

    I am using the session ID to allow multiple people to save a form and then continue to fill it out later. I don't want to use the Edit Link as that forces the URL to change every time the form is saved.

    Is there a way I can trigger an auto email that includes the session ID without using the submit button? It seems that whenever I use the submit button, it clears the content of the form.

    I'm happy to use a javascript solution as I'll be self-hosting the form.

    Thanks

    James

    Hi James,

    Unfortunately, email is triggered only after you click the submit button. 

    If you are using the Session URL method of saving the form field data, the session ID should be kept and the form shouldn't be submitted. If you submit the form, the session data will disappear. You cannot retrieve the submitted data using the same session ID. You have to use the EDIT Link if that's the case.

    Thank you!
