Sending different message to multiple recipients

Sending different message to multiple recipients

Hi,

I'm creating a system for booking elevators. The admin can override existing booking, and the system needs to "alert" those who has already created a booking that they need to modify it.

So, in order to do that, I created a recordset that retrieves the informations of the booking (title, date, time, description) and the email of the person who did the reservation.

With Universal Email 4, I create the object, I click on the "To:" button to add a Recordset loop, and it works fine.

I then click on the DW Edit button to create a page, and I write my message and put my fields in.

Here's the problem: If I leave it that way, every user receives the same message, with the same data (i.e. the first entry in the database, even if it moves from one entry to the other for the email).

If in the DW Edit page, I put a loop, then one user (looks like) receives a message with all the data inside of it (i.e. many times the same text with different data for each).

So, how can I send a message to each user with the different data for each (i.e. the data in the same row as the email address)?

Thank you.

another solution

Well, it didn't work for me, but maybe it was because I already tried something else and I need to change other things...

What I finally did is simply create two different recordsets: one for the data and one for the emails.

After the line that includes the email (ex: include("webassist/email/waue_manage_elevators_2.php");)
I added the line to change the other recordset's row (ex: $row_rsExists = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsExists);).

It works fine. The only drawback is that since you modify the UE code, it doesn't appear anymore in the Server Behavior's panel...
