    Drop down menu with multiple recipients a user can select and send their form to

    Asked by wilsonstraley on January 23, 2015 at 08:57 AM

    I am making a rental application form, and want to add a drop down menu that a user can select where they want their application to be sent to according to availability of units. I know its possible to change recipients of the form, but wasn't sure if I could make a drop down list and have the user select who they want the form sent to.

    Thanks!!!!

    Yes, that is a great thing to do.

    The way to:

    1st way

    You add the emails into Calculation Values field and capture this value in the email template.

    The way you do this is by following these steps: How to Assign Calculation Value

    And then in the email send to field you enter the fields tag, like {emailDropdown}

    To find the right tag, please take a look here: How to find Field IDs & Names

    2nd way

    Using conditions we can check what is selected in the dropdown and then condition the email template to be sent to a specific email address based on this selection.

    A guide that shows how to do this: How to send to a specific email address based on a selection?

    Do let us know which option have decided to go with :)
