  Perhaps an easier way to do this will be to create checkboxes with the department ID as the value:

department 1:<input type="checkbox" name="email[]" value="1" />
department 2:<input type="checkbox" name="email[]" value="2" />
department 3:<input type="checkbox" name="email[]" value="3" />
department 4:<input type="checkbox" name="email[]" value="4" />


and use DataAssist search to filter your users table on the department ID column. in data assist search, create a new filter using the List Fileter type on the email form element to filter the deptID column. Set the Default where to " 0 != 0" so the recordset will initially be empty.

Then in Universal Email, set the to tab to use the recordset loop and set the trigger to if the recordset is not empty.  



I think I have done what you have suggested, but its not working.

I don't really understand how this all links together to be honest. I know how UE works (mostly) but have never used the DA Search before. I understand that it is searching a column for a result which in this case should only find one recordset with a 1 in it. In UE it is using a recordset loop on the same column, so can't figure out how it will find the associated email address in that recordset - that why I think its not working.

I have attached my page for someone to have a look at to help me make sense of this.

I was hoping that a form that could email set individuals or groups of people chosen by the user would be easy to implement as this is quite a common application.

Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
