    Email a referees form from with an application form

    Asked by ywamharpenden on May 15, 2012 at 08:53 AM


    We are looking at moving our training courses application form to Jotform. Currently we have a section where our applicants need to send a reference form to a referee. I'd really appreciate some help on how this could be done within jotform.

    Daniel, thanks for your interest in our services. You can create almost every type of form within JotForm. Can you be more specific? A little more details or a sample form might be very useful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry I don't have a sample form at the moment. We're just getting started. 

    Basically we run training courses and our applicants can apply online (we have our own custom built system but it's got a lot of bugs and no one who can code in PHP). At a certain point in the application process they need to be able to send a reference form to a referee. To do this they fill in the email address of the referee and click send. They are also able to add a short note of their own if they want. The referee would then receive an email with a message that we have written along with the personal message the applicant has written. The referee can then click on the link that they have in the email and can fill in a reference form online. This would be a seperate form. My main question is how can an applicant send a link to a referee for them to fill in their form.

    Hi Jonathan

    Thanks for responding though it wasn't really an answer to the question.

    I basically need to be able to allow someone to email a form to someone else by entering an email address, Name and message.
