request form subject action

We're trying to use WebAssist's Insert New Form wizard to have a basic request along with captcha, and once the submit button is pressed, then it should validate and send an email to the company's president which I've been able to do in past using simple php code, but have never involved with captcha nor such plug-ins before. Is there any tutorial or how to go about once form is validated to produce the email message, perhaps using php mail function?

If you have webassist tools you can just create a form with the Form Builder and use the Validation and Email options and it will work.

Have you tried? If so and you are having trouble, then post the page you are working on and we can help you debug it.

While I'm not 100% certain we have the tools as a search showed it as WebAssist Free Tools, I got as far as using what I believe was the form builder but could not seem to find where the email options were. Attached is the page I was working on.

I am also following instructions from http://www.webassist.com/tutorials/Customize-form-elements-in-your-form-generated-emails but am stuck on the section where it's telling me "In the file browser, expand webassist > email > templates." which I can't seem to locate.

Go to the Server Behaviors panel and click the plus button to add more functionality to your generated form.

"Create Email Message" can be used to send an email on form submit. Once you have added the email functionality it will create the blank email template that you can edit separately.

When I get to the "Create Email Message" wizard to complete, it seems to some generic template\Blank_#.php file with a generic "Your Email Title Goes here" along with "Additional Notes" with no option to include the form fields such as Name, Company, Phone Number, Chemical Name, Inquiry Details. Is there a tutorial for that to walk me through?

All of the form fields will be automatically included in that file in the repeated row in the body.

You can remove that and manually add each form field if you want. Just open the page and go to the bindings panel. Click the plus button and choose "Form Data" and browse to the page that has the form.

Then you will be able to drag/drop the individual form values where you want them displayed in the email body.
