I created a form and I want it to notify me via email when some one fills out the form. Right now I have to click on Reports to see the info. How do I get those results emailed to me automatically? Thanks in advance for the help.

When editing the form within your website on the right side there are advanced options. Within the properties you can set up an email address to be notified when the form is completed. If you have an email set up please check your spam or bulk mail folders. I hope this information was helpful and I am sorry for any frustration this has caused.

I can't get that form to work on my site. I set up my email address on the form as it should be but it does not send me an email. I checked my server to see if it was being put in the spam folder but it appears as though it is not getting to my mail server at all. Good luck getting any support if you need it.

Ccan you have more than 1 email address for notification and if so how do you separate (by comma or?) ?

Also - is there an autoresponder feature? From what I can tell I have to create a Thank You page and then put that URL in the options.

Thanks,

Doug

I am also interested in this feature (for documents though) and will let you know if I have any luck finding some code for it. Good luck!

After some research I have found that Adobe.com has the tools to allow the creation of forms which can be embedded on your site that will gather data and provide email notification once "Submit" is pressed

Careful using Adobe, you may get locked into a proprietary way of doing things.

Why not just use a standard HTML based form?
Here's a link with examples:
http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_forms.asp

Note this example uses Microsoft ASP (Active Server Pages) to drive the form.
You can use this if your NetSol hosting package is Windows based.

If your hosting package is Unix, then you probably want to use PHP, a scripting language,
like ASP is.

Having said all that, when you click the Submit button, you decide what script you want to execute,
and in that script you have code that retrieves the form values.
If the form was not filled out completely, or supplied invalid values, your submit code should
return the user back to the form with an error message.

If all the values pass muster, then your submit script would then
do the emailing. For Windows, google for cdo sendmail code for ASP.
For PHP, I don't know.

If you want to save the values from the form, you submit script could
write those values to a text file on your server, or maybe insert that into a database
on your site. You'll need to research code on how to do that.
