User Notification to WP Logged in User email

  1. Trisha

    Form is used in an intranet environment and only logged in users can get to the form, so there is no "email" field (and no need for one) in the form itself, thus the User Notification can't be set up.

    Right now, there is a hidden (text) field that captures the logged in user's email address as it is set up in their User Profile, and this is used in the Admin notification area to set the "From" and "Reply To" fields, which works fine, but we want a copy of the form submission to be sent to the user as well. I did try entering the merge tag for the user email in the "BCC" field, but that doesn't seem to work - the employee never receives a copy of the emailed form data.

    The company does not want them to have to enter their email address, since it's already "known" by the form. Is there any workaround that you can think of? Can this be added in a future version - that User Notifications can go EITHER to the logged in user email OR to address entered into an email field on the form?

    OK I did come up with a workaround, but I do think this might be a good feature addition.

    For now, what I did (in case anyone else needs to) is to go ahead and add an email field, and under the advanced tab I used the Insert Merge Field, and chose user email. Then I looked for that list item (li) tag in the source to get the ID, and added a line in my stylesheet to hide that list item using display:none;

    This works, but it would be nice to have that choice under User Notification - use the logged in user's email address OR put an email field in the form.

    Thanks for your consideration.
