    Send email to email address that is entered in field

    Asked by ekandetzki on February 19, 2015 at 01:22 PM

    Can I set up a notification to send an email to an email address that the form user will type in? The students are supposed to request faculty recommendations. I want them to be able to type the email address of the faculty member within the application, and then upon submission, not only do I get an email notification of the new submission, but the faculty member will receive an email requesting the recommendation.

    Yes, that is possible. You will just need to add an autoresponder email to your form. Here's how you can add one: https://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder. You will have to use/select the faculty member email field as the recipient of the form:

    If you have any further questions about this matter, just please let us know in this thread.

    Thank you!
