The autoresponder allows you to send automatic personalized e-mails to users who submit the form, typically to confirm that the record has been received and will be processed.


First, you need to select the form field where users will enter their e-mail address using the Confirmation e-mail source field drop-down. This means that autoresponder e-mails can only be used with forms where such a field is present (this should be the case with most on-line forms).


Once a field is chosen, the following additional options will be displayed:


From e-mail

E-mail address from which the autoresponder e-mails will be sent (the From field of the e-mail message).


Subject of the autoresponder e-mails.


You can then define the body content of the e-mails through the text area and WYSIWYG editor. The Generate table layout button generates a table with all field names in the left column and their values in the right column. Particular field names and their values can also be entered separately by selecting a field from the Available fields listbox and clicking the Insert label or Insert value buttons


The Attachments Attachments button in the header of the tab allows you to add files to the autoresponder e-mail, such as a detailed event agenda, white papers, etc. You can see the current number of attachments in the button's caption. Clicking the button opens a dialog where you can manage the attachments.


Please note that macro expressions in the {%FieldName%} format can be used in all fields on this tab. For more information about macro expressions please refer to Developer's Guide -> Modules -> Forms -> Using macros with Forms or Developer's Guide -> Development - Macro expressions.


Detailed information about the Forms module can be found in Developer's Guide -> Modules -> Forms.
