Emails after multiple record update only sending one email to first recipient

Emails after multiple record update only sending one email to first recipient

I've got a plugin that updates multiple records. I want it to then send an email to each person who has had their record updated. The email behaviour isn't working correctly as if I update multiple records (which does work correctly) only a single email is sent and that's only ever sent to whoever is the first person in the first record that gets updated.

I've attached the page for this, which I am using as a plugin. The recipient email addresses are being pulled from a recordset and I know this information is correct as I have the email address for each record displayed on the page.

This is the last hurdle I need to overcome and I can't figure out where I have gone wrong???

to use a recordset loop for the to address, click the "To" Button, to open the advanced to settings and select recordset loop.


instead of using the advanced to settings, you have jsut used the lightning bolt icon to select the email column of the reocprdset, this does not create a loop.

Thanks Jason.
When I go into the settings you described in Universal Email the option to use a recordset is grayed out and I cannot choose it. I noticed the recordset is not showing in the server behaviours panel. I thought this was down to code I had added in around the date field to format it in UK format, but removing this code doesn't seem to bring the recordset back into the server behaviours panel? The page is working fine in terms of the database??

I dint see a reason for the recordset to not show in the server behaviors panel, but if it isn't in the server behaviors panel, it wont be visible to the Universal Email server behavior.

Try recreating the page, That may help with whatever code isa out of place causing Dreamweaver to not inspect the recordset code.

I red exclamation marks next to the alternating styles server behaviour and the repeat region server behaviour - could that be related to why the recordset isn't showing??


**EDIT*** I fixed it by deleting the code for the old recordset and recreating it in the page - The multiple email behaviour works and the recordset is now showing in the Server Behaviours panel
