Newbie help - Form Emailing Help

Firstly congratulations on an easy to use Form maker - one of the best I've seen and used.

Whilst the wizards work a treat I need some help on my first form.

I've created a registration form and wish its details to be emailed to an event organiser and also a "thank you email" to be sent to the person registering and then moving onto a payment page.


My form is linked above and seems to work\validate etc but having spent a few hours trying to get the emailing side to work I would welcome fellow users expert assistance as I can not get the email to work. If I "hard code" into the form wizard then it seems to work so I'm sure its an easy fix for an expert.

Being the newbie with this wizard is it normal for the wizard to revert back to a default email template on reopening the form to edit it despite pointing the wizard to a bespoke editied version?

Attached is my file and the webassist directory files, excluding some images.

Also does anyone have a mod to get form data attached as an CSV file instead of the embedded email?

Ps should have said using the CS Form Builder 201 SR2

in the file you have sent, the bindings you are using are the Validated Entries bindings. These bindings will only have a value if the form fails validation.

in the bindings panel, expand the form collection instead of the validated entries collection. Then bindings in the forms collection are the ones you should be using.

The email cannot be edited when editing the form builder wizard.

to edit the email, go to the server behaviors panel (Window -> Server Behaviors) in the list of sever behaviors double click the Universal Email server Behavior.

Sending the form data as a CSV attachment is not supported. you would need to hand code the logic to create the csv file from the form data and attach the csv file to the email.

Thanks Jason, I will have a look later to try and resolve as I've made some progress since posting as the linked form now sends me an email from the "email address entered".
