Form data sent via email and calendar icon

    Where do I set the email address for the person who is to receive the form information once it has been submitted?

    Also, I have the calendar icon selected for the tournament date. It shows in the "edit" mode but does not show on the form. http://rainbowtennisleague.com/tournament-survey/

    Thanks

  2. Form emails are referred to as Notifications. To configure Notifications you go to Edit Forms and hover over the form and select the "Notifications" link that will appear.

    See this documentation:

    http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/edit-forms/notifications/

    As for the calendar icon, you need to make sure your theme has both the wp_head() function called in your themes header.php file AND the wp_footer() function call in your themes footer.php file. These are necessary for Gravity Forms to output necessary javascript in the header and footer of your site.

    You can read more about these here:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_head

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_footer

    Make sure they are in place as Gravity Forms relies on this functionality being present in your theme and every theme should have these functions as a standard feature.

    Is there a way to have the submitted form data go to the email recipient who gets the notification or is the only way to get it is to have to login in and download the cvs file?

    Hopefully there is a way that the recipient can just get the submitted data when its submitted without the inconvenience of having to go out to the site.

    Thanks!

  4. Notifications are sent via email. Notifications can include the form data if you configure them to include the form data. The form data can be inserted into the content of the notification email, it isn't an attachment. The notification is emailed to whoever you configure it to go to.

    If you want all of the form data to be emailed via the Notification then you would configure your Notification and in the Message Body you would select the "All submitted fields" from the "Insert form field" and insert that variable into the Message Body. It will then email all the submitted form data in the notification.

    Thanks again. I assume the data is still saved on the site in addition to being emailed so later if they want a csv file they can go grab it?

  6. Yes, the data is stored in your WordPress database and is accessible there. To export to CSV you have to use the Export Entries tool and then you can export the form entries to a CSV file.
