    I need a form that allows me to allow the end user to input an email address (that will vary) and go to that variable email address when the end user presses "submit."  

     

    Can your software let me do this?  Here's the situation: I have 2,000 departments and 10,000s of vendors.  When doing RFQs, I want the vendor to fill out the form, and then press submit.  Upon pressing submit, I want the form to go to the university employee that the vendor designates.  

     

    In other words: I don't want submitted forms to go to me.  They need to go to various places.  A-to-B routing is fine, I just need the "B" to be variable.  How can I do this?

    Hi,

    That's possible by creating email condition. You can redirect email notifications to different emails using this condition.

    Here's how to start:

    Example:

    You can also use the field name e.g. {billing}, this will be replaced with the value entered in the form.

     

    Let us know should you have more questions. Thanks!

    Thanks.  I tried this and it didn't work.  Anytime I tried to set up the conditions on the first line of the email conditions wizard, the third box (in your example, "billing") was blank.

     

    Also, the "then send" drop-down never had any options in it.

     

    What am I doing wrong?

    The form needs to have an email notification created:

    In this case I created a condition that if UT Department is filled (which will always happen as it is a required field) then send "email" to "Department's email":

    You need to know the fields name to complete this condition.

    You can test and clone the demo form:

    One suggestion you can use the confirm email option:
