Using BF build 760 and Joomla 2.54.

I have a site where a supervisor uses a BF form to mark the performance of a student. Both supervisor and student are members of the same Joomla user table. When completing the form, the supervisor identifies the student by selecting the name of the student from a select list. I can send an email PDF attachment of the form to the supervisor, but how can I automatically send an email PDF attachment to the Joomla user table email address of the student ?

Hello,

how do you fetch the students names? I think you can do the same with the email addresses and then use the mailback option of the selectlist.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I am currently testing the site with four students only so their names are embedded in the select list.

A bit more information:

My intention is to populate the select list from the "name" field of the Joomla user table. I have seen the Knowledge Base article which explains how to do this, but I would like to filter the list so that only students appear in the list.

I have added a text field to the Joomla user profile called user_type with values "student" and "supervisor".

How can I modify the custom code to filter the list, and then later fetch the student email address to send an email PDF attachment?

If i wish to filter the select list by both user_type AND location, how could I achieve this

Example:

Current user (supervisor) selects location from a select list on form which then populates a select list containing only names of students from that location

Thank you in advance,
Ian
