    You can set up conditional emails:

    First of all create your email composition:

    Email Alert -> Add New Email 


    Select Autoresponder Email and Click Next

    Give your email notification a name, and configure your Sender Email & Recipient settings:


     Configure your email composition:


    And click Finish.

    Now we just need to setup our condition:

    On your form you may have a field that looks like this:

    From the Setup & Embed toolbar, click on Conditions, Select Send Email After Submission and Click Next


    You are now presented with the Condition configuartion. 

    In my example form:

    The Email Address variable should be automatically filled in, the rest of the configuration should hopefully be self explanatory.


    Click Save.


    Hopefully, that answers your question. If you need any further assistance with this, please let us know.
