How do I setup multiple recipients or recipients based on selection ?

1. To setup multiple recipients, just go to the desired email tab (User Email or Admin Email) and enter multiple recipients separated by a comma (,) like this:

    john.dorian@mywebsite.com,webmaster@mywebsite.com,postmaster@mywebsite.com

2. If you want to setup a recipient based on user's selection, try this:

Let's assume that your radio group form component is named "radio".

  • The items of this form component will have to look similar to this:
    john.dorian@mywebsite.com|John Dorian
    webmaster@mywebsite.com|Webmaster Account
    postmaster@mywebsite.com|Postmaster Account
  • In the Admin Email tab, just fill in the To field with the following syntax:

{radio:value}

Note:
  • The above example is for only one recipient. If you want multiple recipients per item, just enter them before the pipe (|), separated by a comma (,).
  • You can use the {radio:text} placeholder in the User / Admin Emails text to return the label of the select items (e.g. John Dorian).

3. If you are using the same email address across multiple items, you'll need to use a script in "PHP Email Scripts" that will control the "To" field based on the user's selection, for example:

    if($_POST['form']['name_of_drop_down'][0] == 'Option1')
      $adminEmail['to'] = 'email1@domain.com';
    if($_POST['form']['name_of_drop_down'][0] == 'Option2')
      $adminEmail['to'] = 'email2@domain.com';

Keep in mind that the fielt items needs to be unique, similar to:

  • |Please select...
  • Option1
  • Option2
  • Option3
  • ...
