Queue to send to multiple recipients

  1. I may be interested in purchasing Gravity Forms if it has the features I require. I have tried the demo and read through the feature list and it looks like it is close but I'm not sure if it has what I need.

    I simply need the messages sent in the contact form to be added to a queue. Then, on the back end I need to be capable of manually approve messages in the queue. Once approved, each message will be sent out to a list of about 25 recipients, without email confirmation. Is your product capable of doing this?

    It looks like this may be possible using a send to administrators option but that looks like it would require confirmation.

  2. Gravity Forms isn't currently capable of queuing the notification emails.

    It can send to multiple recipients, however form submission notifications are sent as soon as a form is submitted and are not queued in anyway.

    We can look at making something like this in a future release, however it is not currently possible the way you described.

  3. I caanot see how to set up the multiple recipients functionality? I would really like to be able to send notification to multiple mailadresses, with different body text.

    Let's say I use your form plugin for Wordpress, and want to use this for a competition to win concert tickets. The one who is participating will automatically subscribe the news mail, but he should also be able to tip a friend about the competition, by filling in a friend's email. When the send button is clicked, one email is sent to the participator and another to the friend.

  4. You can send a single notification to multiple recipients by separating their email addresses by commas when setting up the notifications.

    You can't send different notifications to different email addresses. There are only 2 notification emails, the Admin and the User notification. Those are the only two available.

    How do you send two copies of the user notification to two email addresses? I only see the drop down where you can choose one.

  6. @vivalet Do you mean to another email address that comes from an Email field on your form? If so what you can do is use a form field variable and insert it into the CC or BCC field. You can get the form field variable for that field by using the "Insert form field" drop down on the message body and then copy-n-pasting it from the message body into the CC field. Please note this only works in the 1.5 release.

  7. @Carl I can't seem to get multiple recipients working for the administrator notification setting. I've tried comma, semicolon (can't save settings with this), and simple space separation, but the notification only goes out when a single address is used.

    I have managed to get emails sending to multiple BCC using a field variable which has multiple emails separated by commas, but if one of the email addresses is not valid, none of the emails get sent. I am using the Admin notification section to send the emails out.

    Is there a way around this?

    @Carl Hancock, @ironprogrammer - I see the same thing. If you put a list of email addresses separated by commas in the "Send to email" field for the admin notification, the form won't send to any of the addresses on submission. However, if I enter only one email address, the admin notification is sent.

  12. @AccessMarketing, this is likely a restriction on the part of your host and their mail program, not Gravity Forms. Gravity Forms will happily pass the list of email addresses to wp_mail(). It's up to your host at that point to distribute the mail. If that is not working, you will have to troubleshoot with your host to find out what the restriction is, or you can use an SMTP server to work around most host restrictions on sending mail.
