Email Select People From Drop Down List

Avatar

Level 1

I am creating a form that sales reps fill out to go to one whole department and I have that all set with my email submit button.

However I also need to form to go to one of 5 others based off their names in a Drop down box for who is a manager for a certain region. Since all 5 don’t need to be copied on all form submissions I want our sales reps to be able to select their manager from the drop down list to ultimately add their email address in the CC field when the forms is submitted.

Is this possible?

Thanks, Mike

This is indeed possible.

You will have to create a custom mail button (regular button with own javascript).

For example,

this script in the click:Event will use the value of DropDownList1 in the cTo property of the mailTo function.

Ok,

if you don't know scripting, then you can use this macro (requires Desiger ES2 or ADEP Designer).

It will create the script for you.

The only thing you have to do is to install the macro.
