Based on form data, I would like to have a email button (SUBMIT) that sends mail to the email address identified in the email field. Obviously this can change, how would one go about programming a button to send to email based on field data?  Thank you

Im looking to have the SUBMIT button refrence whatever email address is entered into the email field and when the SUBMIT button is clicked on the form would open up Outlook with the correct email address and completed PDF form attached.

 

Can I just use the mailto: feature and point it to the email address field or am I required to program JavaScript which I dont really understand?

 

Thank you

No. The mailto command is not dynamic. You have to use a script for what you described.
