send mailshot to datassist results


i want to be able to have a checkbox along side the clients name on the results page generated by my data assist pages.

i then want to be able to selecet the ones i want and click a button which will bring up html editor and send an email to via universal email.

could someone talk me through the steps i need to take to do this with the extensions?

do i need a column in my clients table for the checkbox on the results page and how do i go about the rest with html editor and universal email?

many thanks for your help

I think it would be best to work on this in three parts. The first part would be to craft the page that has the HTMLEditor on it, this page will also have the Universal Email server behavior. You should get this page working first so that you can enter a message and and submit it to have UE send out an email.

The next thing to do would be to modify your results page to add in the checkboxes. You would need to have a form wrapped around your results listing. You would then add in the checkbox and set it's value to the id column from your results recordset. The checkboxes should have the same name and [] after them so that it passes an array of values to your page with the UE on it.

The final part of this is to add a recordset to select all of the users to the page with UE on it. Once you have the recordset added apply the DataAssist Search server behavior. You will need to set it up so that you are filtering on the id column, it will be a list type of search. When you get it setup you then would update the Universal Email server behavior to send to each entry in the recordset.

This is a high level overview of how you would put it together. You should work on it one part at a time and test along the way to ensure that you get each part working before moving onto the next.
