Mailing the Form
Click the Action Type drop-down menu and select the Mail To option.
- Thank You Page - point the form to a page confirming a successful submission. On form completion, the user will be taken to this page. Find out more >
- CSS class (optional) - in CLF4, you can add a background colour to your form using the predefined block classes.
- Record Submitter - captures the SFU ID of the user completing the form. This data is only captured when the form is placed on a page with restricted access. The “Submitter” value will be automatically included in the submission email.
When setting up the Mail To properties, only the From and Mailto fields are necessary to send the form data.
In the From field, enter the email address that the email should come from, e.g., email@example.com.
In the Mailto field, enter the email address(es) to receive the form submissions, e.g., your email. Enter additional email addresses in the CC and BCC fields as necessary.
Note: Click on the plus [+] and minus [-] symbols to add or delete fields to the Mailto, CC, and/or BCC sections.
In the Subject field, enter a descriptive subject to enable the person receiving the form submissions to easily identify the form. This is particularly helpful when working with multiple forms simultaneously.
Before clicking OK, check that you have entered valid email addresses in the From, Mailto, CC and BCC fields. The form will not work if any of these fields contain invalid email addresses.
Go into Preview mode, fill out and submit the form to make sure the form data is successfully received. If the form data isn't received, check and ensure the email address(es) in the Form Container component's properties are valid.
Warning: you will not be able to retrieve submitted forms if an invalid email address is entered in the Form Container component's properties.
Lastly, activate the page to make it accessible online. There is the option to Schedule Activation and Deactivation for pages, which is useful for making a form only available within a specified time frame.
