I'm trying to make my form that has an AJAX save progress button only send the mailback emails when the submit button is clicked. I was planning to turn off the mailback email form properties and to used a hidden "finished" field to hold a boolean value set by the save progress and submit buttons. Then, in the submit pieces, send the admin and mailback emails if the finished value was "true". What functions do I need to call in the end submit to trigger the admin and user mailback emails?

Thanks in advance,
Joel

Hi,

basically in the end submit pieces you can use custom php mail to receive admin and mailback email (when mail notification and mailback is turn off).

Based on selection user can receive mail.

If someone click on submit button, that hidden field is set to finished and mail should be send, am I right? Sorry, if I missed something

I think you understand it correctly. Progress button clicked= form submitted with NO emails sent. Submit button clicked = from submitted AND emails sent.

This is what I had in mind so far for the endsubmit:
$this->execPieceByName('ff_InitLib');

$finished = ff_getSubmit('finished');

if($finished == 'true'){
    // do amazing PHP stuff here.
    //send admin email
    //send email to email address from form field
    // possibly use the custom mailback templates??
}

Is there a way to use the specified custom mailback and admin emails in the end submit or can I not use them if the mail notifications are turned off?

Hi,

ok, then this finished element should have a value true then you can use this part:
if($finished == 'true')
This means when you defined element finished in Properties you can set value true for that.

Then in end submit pieces you can use this code:
$this->execPieceByName('ff_InitLib');
$from = 'tihana.krivic@crosstec.org'; // Change this to the EMAIL ADDRESS you want to appear in the Email's FROM field
$fromname = 'Tihana Krivic'; // Change this to the 'FROM' NAME you want to appear in the Email
$recipient = ff_getSubmit('email'); //change email with name of your email element (not title), this is for mailback
$subject = 'Your Subject Here';
$finished = ff_getSubmit('finished');


$body = '';
foreach ($this->maildata as $data) {
  $body .= $data[_FF_DATA_TITLE].": ".$data[_FF_DATA_VALUE].nl() . "\r\n"; 
}



if($finished==true) {
$this->sendMail($from, $fromname,$recipient, $subject,$body);
$this->sendMail($from, $fromname,'tihana.krivic@crosstec.org', $subject, $body);
}
Please replace my email with your admin email

Tihana
