    Is there a way to send a form to a 'one time' email address?

    Asked by ranxero on October 17, 2016 at 11:08 PM

    Is there a way to put in a email address field that would send a copy of the completed form to that person, just once?

    Rather than putting them on the recipient list, I'd like to be able to include an address for just that particular form submission.

     

    Thanks

    (great program, btw)

    I believe you can add an autoresponder in your form to achieve your requirement. When you add an autoresponder, an email will be sent to the email address that you enter in your selected email field. If their email address is not entered in the email field, then they will not receive the autoresponder email.

    Please follow this guide on Creating a Form Autoresponder

    Thats close, but not quite there. I'd like to have a field on the form that I could add a one time email address. So that when that one form gets filled out, it will send a copy of that form to that address. 

    I still want the form to go to all the regular email address's, but for just that one form, go to a specific address.

    Is that possible?

    I think that is still possible to achieve by creating a separate autoresponder for the one time email field. Please see the steps below:

    1. Add the field for your one time email address.

    2. Create a new autoresponder on your form and name it One Time Only

    3. Now on the settings of the One Time Only autoresponder, select the Recipients tab and set the Recipient Email as the One Time Email field.

    Save the form and you're all set. Here's a demo form so you can see it in action: https://form.jotform.com/62918306726966. You can also clone it to your account to see my setup.

    In that demo form, when the regular Email field is filled, then the regular autoresponder will be sent. But if the user fills the One Time Email field, then an autoresponder will be sent to the email address that they entered there.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
    Regards.
