    How can you dynamically populate the notification email address

    Asked by dcote on May 01, 2015 at 12:52 PM

    I have a site where I need to dynamically populate a jotform. One of the fields in my database for my site is the email address. 

    Is it possible to dynamically prepopulate the email notification email address? 

    The site I have has a ton of listings for different businesses and I basically want to be able to have a form that can dynamically pull their email address to use as where the form will send an email notification to the business owner.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We do not have a built-in functionality to populate the form field(s) from a database. It might be possible with a custom programming and form source code.

    If the number of email addresses is not huge, you might consider adding them to our system with conditional rules. Please take a look at the following guide.
