    Setting Email notification recipient base on field selection

    Asked by designisgrowth on June 12, 2015 at 03:07 PM

    Hey Guys,
    Is there any way that someone filling out a form could select a person to email the notification to via a radio list?


    Thanks for the help,

    Yes, that is possible. 

    First, 

    Then, 

    And, 

    Place the {sendEmail} on the Recipient-Email field:

    The {sendEmail} holds whatever value is selected from the Radio field.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

    This is great but what if you don't want to list the person's email in the radio button selection, instead you want to list their names and have the name that you select go to that person's email. Thanks for the help!

    That is still possible. 

    You will need an extra hidden(so it will not show on the form) text field on your form. 

    Then, you need to set Calculation Values

    So each time a name is selected from the radio button field, it will return the corresponding calculation values.

    Now, you need to pass the value to the "Email Address of the person selected" field using Condition.

    Here's how.

    Then, we need to pass the value that's being passed to Email Address field to the Notifier

    Here's another way for you to do this, without needing an extra text field and using Conditions only.

    Then, you notifier will become a Conditional notifier.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.
