submit by email

Seems that if an email address is entered into the form when using the 'submit by email' button, the address can be easily harvested. Is there another way of sending the form?



Presently, our form needs to be printed and then uploaded on the site. Seems cumbersome but avoids the problem of harvesting.



Thanks

As always, the best way to submit a form is to use http or, for a

secure form, use https. There are WAY too many problems with email for

it to be used on most live forms - think of it as a toy, handy for

testing only.

Hi,



I'm having two problems. I got this great form setup. Its intended for a person to make a request to the manger by filling out the form and E-mailing it to the manager. When the Manager receivwes the form, they will digitally sign and forward to the ACIO the ACIO will open it , review and digitally sign sending by e-mail to the CIO. The CIO then opens it and selects a radio button that gives the option to approve it or deny it. Approve it populates a picture saying approved. Not approving populates a comment section .the form is the nsent back to the originator and they manager.



Problem is:

1. I want the form to lock after the first person e-mails it. Setting up the collection list gives me error after error. When they are not set It looks fine.

2. After the first person e-mails the form to the manager. when the manager goes to sign the form I get this error like: File may be read only or another user has it opened.

3. obviously i can't get the rest to work if the first e-mail that went out didn't work.



Any help out there?

Paul,



Thanks for the response. I am in LiveCycle 8, the submit button is highlighted and in the object pallete there is nothing that says 'submit as' which is outlined in the help file also. Only a field type, 5 caption types, url: checkbox for sign submission, presence: locale:.



Where to find?



Thanks

Another questions now that the 'Button' issue has been resolved.



In the 'Submit to URL' Field I have http://www.domain.com/uploads. Whether or not the trailing / is used does not seem to matter. The result in either case is an 'Index of /Uploads' page and there is no sign of the .pdf anywhere that I can find.



Any idea would be helpful.



Thank you.

The submitto URL is used to call a program on the server (the program will depend on the type of webserver you have). The program will interact wih the web server and as a result of that the file can be written to disk. Just entering a file location will not do what you want.
