Conditional attachments

    The following post is closed http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/conditional-notification-and-routing where Carl Hancock said:
    "Gravity Forms can route the Admin Notification to an email based on a choice in a select box, so it can do this part.

    However it can't send a User Notification with a specific attachment based on a choice in a select box. Conditional notification messages are not currently a feature, however it is a feature we plan on adding in the future."

    I also need this feature of sending attachments conditional on values in form fields. However it's not quite straightforward. Firstly, I need to BCC emails to several recipients based on values in the form fields (which I believe I can do with the routing option??). But I ALSO want to send an email back to the person who submitted the form with an attachment which depends on the field values entered.

  2. Routing and BCC are not a feature of Gravity Forms. The routing option is for To addresses only. You could use the gform_pre_submission_filter: http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_pre_submission_filter to dynamically change the BCC address based on the form entry. That would work like routing, but would require a little bit of PHP code in your theme's functions.php.

    Conditional attachments can be accomplished a couple of different ways. You can use the gform_user_notification_attachments filter: http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_user_notification_attachments

    You would test the entered values and then add the attachments as appropriate. Before that filter came along, you could always provide a link in the email to the attachment on your site. It would not be attached, but available for download.

    Hi Chris,
    Thanks for such a comprehensive reply!

    Pardon my ignorance (I am new to WordPress), but when you say

    "would require a little bit of PHP code in your theme's functions.php"
    ... do you mean the functions.php in my WordPress theme, or is there a functions.php that comes with a Gravity theme?

    You said,

    "Before that filter came along, you could always provide a link in the email to the attachment on your site. It would not be attached, but available for download."

    ... thanks for thinking outside the box! :)

  4. functions.php in your current theme or child theme folder

    Did you have any other questions? What you want to do can be accomplished with just a few lines of PHP.
