Hi. I have a timesheet form that has two parts employee and manager. I have made a condition so that the employees choice of manger email address is to be suto copied to field in mangers page. I have not been able to get it to work unless I use calculate value instead of copy value, and it fills the to field with repeating email address seperated by = signs?
can you help.

This is because you have exactly setup it as "Your Current Manager/Team Leader" = "Approving Manager" in your conditions. Here's a screenshot:
If you just want to output the email address in the "Your current manager" to the "Approving manager", then you should setup the condition like this:
You can use the "Copy a Field's Value" in the "DO" statement. However, you need to make sure that the field is set to "A-Z". To do that, you need to use the "Calculate a field's value".

On a different note, please avoid creating form fields that are asking for passwords or have labels like "Passwords". Here's one:
I recommend renaming your password fields like "Access key" or "Access code" to avoid problems. If you have other forms like this it is also recommended to update or edit them.

Thanks all sorted. By the way I could not get copy value to work so had to use calculate instead.
