Copy of completed form sent to clients email address

Post by Tretonia » Mon Apr 08, 2019 6:17 pm

Is there a field that I can add to a form that a client can have a copy sent to their own email address should they so wish?

The 'auto responder' option in the form properties can be used to send a copy of the email to the client.

I need the field to be filled out on line by the client when they complete the form, will this give this option?

I'm sorry, this option can only be activated in the form properties during design-time.
If you need more advanced functionality then you can implement your own form processor script.

I have a html email extension that may do the trick for you
Demo here:
https://shop.grahamscomputers.net/demo/ ... index.html

In the setup if you name the email field email then in my extension you simply put $email in the BCC area and it should send an email to the person filling out the online form.

In my online demo it may or may not work because I have the recepient set to $email and so is the autoresponder and BCC however I have tested it in a normal situation and it does work. for EG: if the form has these settings for the following fields it should work

to = someone@email.com
email = $email (this would grab the email address the person filling out the form uses)
BCC = $email ( this would also send a copy of the form being sent to the email address used in the email field)
autoresponder = $email

In my extension you can also use the same html code from the message area of the normal form and place it in the autoresponder and this would then mean you dont have to use the BCC at all becasue the autoresponder will be a duplicate of the email being sent to the website owner

Hope it makes sense

Graham
