2 forms; same site, different email addys

I need to set up 2 forms on one site with each form going to a different email addy... such as: Employee A gets email from Form A; Employee B gets email from Form B.

How do I do this?

make sure that each form has uniquely named form elements including the submit button.


When adding universal Email select the Button <Name of submit Button> Pressed trigger.

You will need to add two instances of the universal email behavior, one to send to the first address the second to send to the second address.

A different process

Thanks for the reply, Jason.

I wasn't grasping your instructions so I tried something different. It seems to be working, but I'm not sure if it's entirely the "correct" thing to do. Does this make sense to you:

At the top of form page 1 form I have --
<?php require_once('WA_Globals/WA_Globals.php');?>

And on the other form (form 2) I have --
<?php require_once('WA_Globals/WA_Globals2.php');?>

I then created a WA_Globals2.php and simply inserted the second email address.

Both forms go to the same Thank You page.

ahh, so this in regards to Contact Form Solution pack.

Yes, with contact form solution pack, that is exactly the correct way to have 2 separate forms on the site.

you posted this in the CSS Form Builder forum, so I thought you where asking about 2 forms using CSS Form Builder.

Oops!

I'm so sorry for posting on the wrong forum! As you may have noticed, I very rarely, if ever, need tech support -- your products are rather intuitive (which is why I was able to come up with a different solution), and come with excellent instructions.

The only thing I cannot for the life of me figure out with this program is how to get the email replies to stop centering on the page. The initial email comes in just fine...aligned left. But once you reply to the person, their return reply comes back all centered.

That's not something that Universal Email can control, it is a problem with the email client.

In most email clients, when you respond to a message, the original message is quoted with a ">" character at the beginning of each line. the leading ">" that the email client is adding, is probably causing the issue.

I wish it was something that easy to figure out, however, there is no leading > in the replies. I've been struggling with this issue for months, in all sorts of email clients.

not all clients use a ">" as the quote character, but all clients do use a character in front of the quoted text that will throw off any css positioning. Universal email can only effect how the email message is sent the first time.

It cannot effect how the email client quotes the message when it is replied to, this is handled by the email client solely.
