  1. I have a list of employees in a table on a page. I'm looking for suggestions to create a way that I can have a link next to a person's name that will allow site visitors to click on that link and go to another page with a Gravity Form that will direct the email to the specific employee.

    Kind of like this...
    http://www.rsd6.org/subsite/dist/directory
    Click on the email icon and a new page is shown with the form pre-populated with the employee.

    Of course, I can create a Gravity Form that has a drop down with all of the employee names, and conditionally set up the form to email based on a specific field, but this will be a lot of work to set up and manage. Plus, it will not be user friendly since the drop-down will include 50 employees.

    Suggestions?

  2. You should be able to use dynamic population. You can setup an email field on the form that is set to populate dynamically and then you can pass the employees email address via a query string in the link to pre-populate the email field. Then you can use that email field in the notifications area.

  3. This what I'm trying to do as well. I've created a hidden field to populate with the email address. Then I'm using the email address in the shortcode to populate that field. But, I can't figure out how to use that field in the notifications area. Do I use routing?

  4. You would use routing, but I'm thinking in this case rather than using a hidden field, use an email field that is set to admin only. I'm thinking that should do the trick for you.
