Email notification from custom form to submitter

  1. Some of the users of my site have asked that when they submit a query using a custom form they would like a copy of the email to be sent to them at the address they enter, as well as to the site admin people. Is there any way of doing this? If not, could you clever people consider implmenting it?

    The blog I need help with is manchestercommunitychoir.org.uk.

  2. If you want the custom form to be sent to specific email addresses (e.g. all of your site admin people), you can add their email addresses when you create the form. As you are building the form, click on "Email notifications" and add all of the desired email addresses, separated by commas: http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/#notification-preferences

    As far as I know, there isn't a way for the person submitting the form to automatically receive a copy. This seems like a nice feature to be able to add if you want it (perhaps with a sentence for the user like "Check this box if you would like to receive a copy of this form via email"). I'll tag this thread for staff attention to see what they think about the idea. :)

  3. Thanks for the reply.
    I had already worked out how to forward input from the form to be sent to a list of people, but some people said they didn't like using those because they had no record of the message sent.
    What you have described with "Check this box if you would like to receive a copy of this form via email" is exactly what I would like to be able to do.
    I did look at implementing it using webhooks, but as far as I can tell you need a site to host the webhook code, so that's not straightforward.

  4. Hi there,

    That's a great suggestion! Thanks so much for posting it here; I've passed it along to the development team for their consideration as a future enhancement.

    Best!
