I'm just starting to learn Forms module. I see that there is a way to set up notifications for backend users who subscribe to specific forms (Setup email notification for form responses).
But what I'm really interested in is ability to email a confirmation to the person who is submitting the form itself (assuming that there is an "email" textbox on the form capturing the person's email address, of course). Is there anything like that already built in?
One simple example would be event registration (talking about free events/webinars, etc.... no payment necessary). A user submits name and email, and the system emails the user with submitted information as a form of confirmation.
There is an add-on available on the MarketPlace that extends the public Forms Widget, so that you can decide whether the form submitter receives a confirmation, the admin receives a confirmation and some other options. It comes with sourcecode, so it is quite easy to adjust.
This is the link to this widget. Instructions are included.
Forms Module Notification
You probably have to rebuild the project against your own Sitefinity installation.
Just hitchiking on this topic while it's hot - I'm also looking at email notifications for forms. I'm using the form module to setup a Quote Request form. Specifically, I want to have an email notification with all the form's data sent to a specific email address. Of course I looked here. It's probably silly, but I'm not really sure what data to enter at step 1C.
Can I just enter any email address I want in DefaultSenderEmailAddress?
Where can I find the Host and Port info? Is that the info for the address the form data should be sent to? In this case, it's our company's main info mailbox, so should I check in Outlook?
Will this send all the form's data in the email or do I need to perform extra steps to get that done?
Thanks for your help!
Hi Marko, IN addition to what Daniel pointed out, there's also an ability to extend the out of the box Forms widget and plug in to the event that fires up after clicking the submit button - this would allow you to implement custom email notifications as well.
