I have a fillable form that I need the submitter to receive a copy of the completed form.  I have a submitter email field that we can obtain the submitter's email address.

Please explain in the simplest explanation.  I'm new to Adobe but not other programming methods.

 

Thank you so much.

1. As the MouseUp event of your submit button. 2. Correct. 3. You can combine them like this: var submitterEmail = this.getField("SubmitterEmail1").valueAsString + "," + this.getField("SubmitterEmail2").valueAsString + "," + this.getField("SubmitterEmail3").valueAsString;

Hi there

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described you want that the submitter of the PDF form should also get the copy of the form

 

Would you mind sharing the workflow/steps you are doing to share the PDF form with the submitter? Does th form has a signature field and are you sharing the PDF for signature via Fill and Sign Tool > Send for signature?

 

If yes, once the signature process is complete and the signer and the sender of the PDF form will get the complete PDF form on their registered email address.

 

Hope this information will help. Let us know if you are referring to something else.

 

Regards

Amal

1.  A provider fills out the fill form fields which includes the submitter name and submitter email's address.

2.  Once the submitter completes the form they press the "Submit" button.  This button email's the form to numerous recipients.

 

I would like a copy of the form to also go to the subscriber for their records.

 

If all it takes is to add a signature section that's will be an easy fix.

 

Thanks for the help.

You can do it using this code (adjust the field names and target email address as needed, of course):

 

var submitterEmail = this.getField("SubmitterEmail").valueAsString;
this.mailDoc({cTo: "me@server.com", cCc: submitterEmail, cSubject: "Subject line goes here", cMsg: "Email message body goes here"});

I'm very sorry for the basic question!

1. Where do I add the code?

2.  I am assuming that my Submitter's Email field goes in this.getField("SubmitterEmail")

3.  I also have three other emails that the form will have to go to.

 

Thanks for the help.
