How to populate an Email field with a custom post field?

    Hey Guys,

    at first: great plugin! I bought some single licenses in the last months, now I bought the developer license - it`s really worth the money!

    In the last days I searched the forms and the documentation to solve a specific problem, but I did not succeed, so I need your help now:

    I am running a job board and want to realize the following process:

    - userregistration by GF (works)
    - user publishes a job offer, when the user publishes the job offer, a custom post field stores the users email address, so every post has a specific email address where later on applications should be sent to
    - anonther registered user now wants to apply for this job offer by using a second form (that is displayed on every single page)

    This is where my problem is: The email address of the user offering the job is stored as a custom post field. How can I achieve, that this address will be used as a notification email-address, when the form is submitted? So that the applicants message is directly sent to the user that published the offer?

    I have read the following topics:

    http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/using-custom-fields-to-populate-hidden-fields
    http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/populate-fields-with-custom-fields-values

    and I really tried hard, bud did not succeed :) Please help!

    Thank you

  3. This is pretty simple to do with the available tools without writing code. Here is a forum post that discusses how to do this:
