Form Submissions to Multiple Email addresses Based on Selected Form Options

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm presenting to a client next week- they are hoping to use forms to increase the efficiency of some of their workflow.  Basically, the form would be built with the following fields:

-student name 

-(student email address would then appear automatically with logic)

-more info, then submit.

the submissions need to be sent to the student's email address which appears when selected, rather than a dump into one account.  Is there a way to use this logic?

Thank you so much!!!

do you know if SS has updated their conditional logic?

I'm not sure which conditional logic you are referring to. Squarespace forms are pretty basic.

Can you elaborate?

@paul2009 like if/then rules for the forms.  Hot form does this pretty well but I’d prefer not to have the client pay for another subscription off-site.  So basically, the logic would be rules that state:

1. IF Callan’s name is selected, THEN his email address will appear and

2.  IF Callan’s name/email are selected THEN the submission is sent to Callan’s email.  
 

would love to hear that squarespace’s form capacities have updated over the years, but I can’t figure out how to create a conditional logic beyond a simple yes/no radio button 😞

@DevonHarris I'm sorry to tell you that Squarespace forms are the same as they were in 2007. They don't have any conditional logic. 😢

You would need to use a third party forms service.

If a third party solution can't be found I think all the pieces are available to build a custom one using SS forms. It wouldn't be easy but I think it could be done.

The two main pieces are the form autocomplete and routing the submitted form to the students email address.
