Different Send To Emails Based On...

Had an interesting question posed to me by someone...

Can you send an email to a certain email based on selection (Drop Down, Check box, Radio)?

At this point I don't see where we would have the option to do that UNLESS - you had the ability to create a dropdown with a sub option to an email.

I wanted to know if anyone had created a form that could be emailed to different email addresses based on a selection.

The example I have is a place with 2-3 Sales offices and depending on the location of the person completing a form they may want to select the office that is closer to them. Once they selected their closest office, then it would email someone from that office, but not everyone.

This may be a suggestion at this point rather than something that has been or can be done currently.

Jared - I'm pretty sure someone else was discussing that very situation earlier today. I'll see if I can find the thread for you.

Edit:
Nevermind, found the thread and seems I was mis-reading what was being discussed actually. Sorry for any confusion.

I would think you could use Jquery to show a different form based on the users selection. So each form would have a different email assigned to it.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

If I recall correctly (correct me if I'm wrong here Scott or anyone else that may have seen the conversation) this is something they are looking at putting in at some point, but it's not there at this time.

I did a proof of concept. Nothing fancy but it does work.:)
Email change on selection.

Eric,
That is one option to make it work, but I was looking for something "inside" the form builder. I am not really sure how that would look when creating a form in the form builder. Looks like this may be a suggestion rather than a reality at this point. I don't know how many other folks would like that option but it may come in handy for some. Thanks for putting that together...it looks good!

Actually you can. I used a simular approach to add a Paypal system. What you do is set the reply to a php script that reads the result.csv file and depending on what radio, drop down selection is made you use php send mail to the appropriate destination. It will be invisible to the user. The script will take over after the event and will not effect the forms performance. Every thing is available in the results.csv or sql if desired.
If you want to go down that track I will help, not do it for you. I would charge for that. You would have to have your own hosted site. There is enough contact information around the forums if you want to talk to me. In the mean time Eric seems to have a good concept he demonstrated.
