I’m creating some custom forms using channel forms, and I have all the data saving properly. However, I don’t see any place to edit the actual email it sends a notification email to in channel settings. Is this possible? I’d like my client to receive email that has all the form fields filled out for instance. is this possible?
http://dev.vipcountryclub.com/contact-us/information-request-form I see a dynamic title for the email, but no dynamic body for the email.
I currently don’t have any edit capabilities as I just wanted a guest to be able to fill out form and it gets saved. I’m guessing this is only way client would be able to see it?
There’s nothing native in EE that sends notifications on Channel Entry Form submissions. From the sounds of it you’re looking for something like Freeform or EE Harbor Forms add-ons which are made to do what you’re looking for (users can submit a form, save that submission in the CMS, and notify recipients with information from the form).
If you want to have a go of it yourself, here’s some information where a community member was trying to do the exact same thing. https://expressionengine.stackexchange.com/questions/39282/email-notification-from-channel-form. Basically, create an extension to hook into after the form is submitted, grab the value of the recipient’s email, and send the email.
Here’s the skeleton of the extension for you (generated with tripleNERDscore’s awesome add-on generator : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bfyGzEBuFnbCp8Q2u3Hp59vduwvLFvQS/view?usp=sharing
Ya I’ve used freeform before and loved it, just was hoping to avoid another plugin cost but seems that’s the road I’ll go. Just hope they are ee6 compatible now. Thanks for response
