    How do I set conditions for an auto-responder?

    Asked by CTSemAdmis on May 09, 2012 at 02:50 PM

    Does anyone know how to fill out a form (as an administrator) and not have the auto-responder run? An example might help clarify....There is an information form on a website for signing up to learn more about degree programs. Sometimes, individuals call instead of filling out the form online. Instead of waiting for them to fill it out, I would open up the form and fill it out myself while we are on the phone. I don't want the standard auto-responder to run for them in that case. But I ALSO don't want to have the same form cloned  in order to have a different notification setting and have the data spread out to different forms.

    Hi Matt

    The only way to turn off autoresponder is by deleting the notification/autoresponder. You may take a look on this on how to delete Notification/Autoresponder.

    If you need further assistance, feel free to contact us anytime.

    OK. It appears that the full answer is that no, it is not possible to pause or set any other conditions to autoresponders. I will not be deleting them as that would be very cumbersome. Please add this feature in further releases. 


    Thank you

    Actually you can setup a conditional logic to an autoresponder , in order  to accomplish what you are looking for

    I have made some tests trying to recreate the scenario you are talking about.

    I my form, if I choose Contact over the phone, both the notification and autoresponder will not go through, but if I choose SEND a message, it will.

    Here I leave you my form (just change the recipient email addresses in the notification and the sender email address in the Autoresponder)

    Feel free to clone it  and make a test pretending to be a "user" , use a different address to get the autoresponder message.

    Have a nice day

    Should you need further assistance, let us know
