Digital File Uploader, email alert

I don't know if Digital File Uploader is the right solution to this. What I want to happen: a visitor to the site, fills out a form, uploads a pdf, it lands on server, and the name of the file is entered into the appropriate database, AND an email is sent to site owner. Is this possible, or is there another set of tools I should be using to accomplish this? Thanks

you would use Universal Email 4 and DataAssist.

Universal Email 4 contains file upload capabilities and can be used to send the email message.


You would use DataAssist for storing the uploaded file name into the database.

Thank you. Is there a tut for marrying the two in the same form? This sounds exactly what I need.

There is a tutorial on the Universal Email support page for using File Upload on DataAssist insert and update pages:
