    Drop down box selection sends email to another recipient

    Asked by mikerotech on September 23, 2016 at 09:38 AM

    I have 5 different managers each one assigned to a specific drop down box selection. Is it possible to generate an email to be sent directly to that manager when their unit is selected in the drop down box?

    Yes, it is possible to send an email based on the selected option using the Change Email Recipient condition. Here's a guide:

    1. Create a drop down field.

    2. Click the "Conditions" button in the toolbar.

    3. Select the "Change Email Recipient" condition.

    4. Set a condition wherein if "John Doe" is selected, then the "Notification 1" will be sent to "johndoe@johndoeemail.com".

    5. You need to create a separate condition for the other options.
