    Create text string from form using conditions

    Asked by marc_cinnafilm on March 07, 2016 at 12:00 PM

    Hello, is this possible?

    Using a series of form questions, could you construct an output text string? For instance, could you use a form to create an email template? Here is an example - 

     

    Form Inputs:

    Clients Name - Cisco Systems (type in)

    Been introduced? - No (radio button)

    Use their Products? - Yes (radio button)

    Request Meeting? - Yes (radio button)

    Text string output:

    Greetings Cisco Systems

    Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Marc.

    I use your products, and I think they are great.

    I would love to meet with your corporate team if possible. 

    ...

     

    I know you could do these are separate outputs, only appearing with certain conditions. But is there a way to string them all together in one text block output?

    Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately there is not easy way of accomplishing these. The easiest way would be to use condition and update the values in hidden text boxes depending of the selections. Once all the fields have been selected, you can add another condition to concatenate all hidden text boxes in another field.

    You can add use this last field in your email or just add the hidden fields in your email.

    Please let us know if you require additional assistance.
