    I created a field form for doing proposals. Is there a way to have an email sent to the entry in the email spot? Basically, once they sign the form

    You seem to be asking about an autoresponder - an automatic response email your users will receive upon filling out your form. You can set it up by following this guide:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder

    In the Recipient Email field of your form autoresponder, simply select the form field where your users will be entering their emails:

    If you are instead looking to set up an email notification to be sent to your own email address when a submission is made on your form, please set up an email notifier instead:

    Please let us know how it goes, or if you need further assistance.

    Actually, if you look at my form, I put in a text block to enter the clients email address, phone number, mailing address, etc. Being each form will be client specific, I did not want to set up the auto responder every time. I wanted to link the info that was put in for e-mail so that when I pressed the submit button, it would get forwarded to that address.

    I'm not quite sure if I am understanding your concern correctly or how you would like your form to work. Perhaps you can share us an example flow, how the form is submitted, what notifications will be sent, to whom should they be sent and when should that happen.

    So far I see you already have 3 notifications and 1 autoresponder in your form:

     

    If you want to conditionally send the notifications ONLY if a certain input field is filled out, then you can use conditional logic to accomplish that. Here's a guide that you can refer to: http://www.jotform.com/help/167-How-to-send-to-a-specific-email-address-based-on-a-selection 

    We'll wait for your response.

    I do not want to use any notification or auto responder. I want the email address that I type on the form itself to be used. Is there a way to link that?

    The only way to have an email sent from the form, is to either use an email notification, or an autoresponder.

    An autoresponder will be sent to the email address that is being entered on your form by the person submitting it. So autoresponder is sent to the address that is being typed on the form.

    If you need something else, please describe in more detail about the exact workflow you are trying to achieve. From what we see so far, you seem to be describing an autoresponder - which sends an email to the address that is typed on your form.

    If it is something else, we will be happy to help, but we would need more information about the exact workflow you are expecting. We will await your clarifications. Thank you.

    See picture attached. If I put the email address in this box, will it get delivered to this particular person and then the next time, to another person?

    I'm afraid your image didn't reach us, as our forum software can't accept images sent through email. In order to attach an image to your post, you'll have to open this support thread directly in your browser and attach an image in the way described in this post.

    If you were asking about when you type the email address into this "E-mail" field on the form:

    As long as you set your email autoresponder's recipient to be the "E-mail" field, the autoresponder will automatically read the email address entered on this field and send an email to that address:

    Same goes for the "Secondary E-mail" field - if you set your autoresponder to have "Secondary E-mail" field as its Recipient Email, the autoresponder will automatically read the value from that field and send an email there when your form is submitted.

    You can read more in the following guide:
