    workflow question (approval triggers the sending of another jotform)

    Asked by mrsecehr on April 22, 2016 at 11:22 AM

    Hi there,

    I have a "change in status/new student" completed by a professor.  When prof enters an e-mail address in form 1, have an instructional email sent to that e-mail address (of the new student) with a link to a new student form for completion.  I've read some of the more complex workflows, which make me think this should be easy, but I didn't find this "trigger" another jotform example.  Screenshot attached.  Thanks!

    Also, if you want to sent the email to the email address that was entered on your forms email field, use an autoresponder instead of the notification: http://www.jotform.com/help/26-Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder
