FormLogix data entry email alerts

<in the FormLogix email form builder there are 3 types of emails which may be sent upon each new data entry:
1- a new data entry alert sent to the account owner
2- a carbon copy of the entered data sent to the form filler
3- a carbon copy of the entered data sent to specified mailing list addresses

1- A new data entry alert sent to the account owner
Once a form filler submits an entry in your form you (the account owner) automatically receive a new data entry alert via email. This email is sent by default and it is not customizable.
If you no longer want to receive these emails you can use the “Disable Emails” option to stop them.

in order to disable emails you need to:
A- enter your form (the emails are disabled per form and not per account)
B- go to the “form settings” on the right
C- turn on the “Disable emails” option
D- press on “apply”
E- save the form

2- A carbon copy sent to the form filler
This option allows the form filler to receive a copy of his/her submitted data. This option is not active by default but rather depends on the use of an “email element”.

In order to activate this carbon copy all you need to do is:
A- select the email element in your form (if you have no email element in the form you will need to add one)
B- go to the “element settings” on the right
C- turn on the “send copy” checkbox
D- press on “apply”
E- save the form

The email sent to the form filler has a standard layout and looks like the one sent to the account owner, but you may add a message to it by using the ”Email User Message” option or customize it altogether by using the “Custom User Email” option.
*Please note that the customized email message will be applied on both form filler email and mailing list email.

In order to customize the email format you need to:
A- enter your form
B- go to the “form settings” on the right
C- press on the “custom user email” button (to open a mail configuration window)
D- enter the email content that will replace the existing email content. You can write plain text and also use the form variables to insert the actual data entered by the form filler.
E- press on “edit text” to open an editor window and graphically style the email – font type/color /size/line breaks etc .
F-Press on the “save icon” on the top toolbar which will close the editor window
F- press on the “save” button on the bottom of the configuration window
g- press on “apply”
H- save the form

3- A carbon copy sent to specified mailing list addressesThis option allows the form owner to share the data he is receiving by having it sent to other specified email addresses in addition to himself.

In order to use this option you need to:
A- enter your form
B- go to the “form settings” on the right
C- enter email addresses in the “mailing list” textbox
D- press on “apply”
E- save the form

The email sent to the mailing list recipients, same as the one sent to the form filler, has a standard layout and looks like the one sent to the account owner. You may add a message to it by using the ” Email User Message” option or customize it altogether by using the “Custom User Email” option.
*Please note that the customized email message will be applied on both form filler email and mailing list email.
