Auto Reply after Submission
#1
I searched the forums and documentation and didn't see anything specific to what I am trying to do.

I am using a simple form on an HTML site. I am not using the API or anything. I created the form on my own then Form Tools took the fields from my site and did its thing.

All I am trying to do is send an auto reply e-mail once the user submits it. I want the e-mail to go to whatever e-mail they provided in the email and list what they submitted.

I tried to add {$ANSWER_email} as the e-mail address when setting up who receives the e-mail notification but it doesn't like that.

Can what I am trying to do be accomplished?

Hi T-mo!

Sure, no problem: on the Edit Form -> Emails tab, click the "Configure Form Email Fields" button:
http://docs.formtools.org/userdoc/?page=...ail_fields

That page lets you tell Form Tools which of the forms fields are actually email fields. Once you've done that, re-edit your email template. In the "recipient" field, you'll now see a new option: that email field. Just select it and you're good to go.

Hope this helps! :-)
