    How do you set up emails to send to multiple people based on a check box input?

    Asked by jaymckk on October 26, 2011 at 11:02 PM

    I am using my form as an online application to serve at my church, and I'm wanting to set it up so that when a person checks a box on the application saying where they want to serve at, it emails the director of that area. I set up the conditions, but the problem I am running into is if someone checks multiple areas that they want to be involved in, the conditions arent met, and no emails get sent out.  Is there any way to set up the form to email only the people that need to see the application, when mulitple check boxes are marked.

     

    The condition right now is based on the question "Where are you wanting to serve?"

    If someone checks more than one box, no emails are sent to any of the directors.

    Hi Jay,

    I have tested what you have explained above and didn't replicate the issue, please clone this form https://www.jotform.com/form/12994928553 to find out the conditions and notification setup.

    1. First, you should create Each Notifications for every Area you had, see my Screen below:

     

    Note: I renamed my Notifications, for me to indentify the right email used on my conditions.

    2. Create Each Conditions for  each ptions you had. Please see Screen below:

    Select "Send an E-mail after Submission" then Next

    Now, start creating each conditions just follow the screen guide below:

    Resulting Conditions should look like this:

     

    This way when user select multiple answers on where it will be emailed the submissions will then be sent to those email addresses. 

    e.g.

    User answered Production and Hospitality

    Submissions will then be sent to Production Email and Hospitality Email

     

    If you need further assistance with this just let us know, we'd be happy to help you.
