Creating Form With Multiple Drop Downs And Emails


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am trying to put together code in DreamWeaver that will allow me to have an 12 individual emails added to 2 drop down lists within a form. There are 12 organizations with 12 separate org. managers and I don’t want them to receive unnecessary emails that don’t affect their business. I have looked high and low for help but can't seem to get this to work. I can get one drop down with an email using the attached code but the second one won’t work for some reason. I know I’m missing something simple.

 

Intent for the form is when sales Rep fills out form fields with equipment to transfer from one place to another. He then selects a Requesting Org and a Shipping Org, which email will go to specific Org Mgr.

* Once Submit button is selected 4 additional people will also receive the request (this will be accomplished using a distribution list) * I have this working on another form, it is the emailing of 2 separate drop down list that has me stumped.

 

Thanks,

Sparkymom7

 

This code works:

 

<!doctype html>

<html>

<head>

<meta charset="UTF-8">

<title>emailformtest</title>

</head>

 

<body>

 

<form NAME="transferForm">

<p>

Requesting Branch:

<select SIZE="1" NAME="transfer">

<option>Select One:</option>

<option value="mgr1@mail.com">Org 1</option>

<option value="mgr2@mail.com">Org2</option>

<option value="mgr3@mail.com">Org3</option>

 

</select>

</p>

<p>

 

<input LANGUAGE="JavaScript" TYPE="button" VALUE="Submit"

ONCLICK="location.href = "mailto:" +

document.transferForm.transfer.options[document.transferForm.transfer.selectedIndex].value"

NAME="Send email">

</p>

</form>

 

</body>

</html>

 

This code doesn't work and believe me I have tried many different ways to get this to work - I have simplified code here for the sake of confusion.

 

<!doctype html>

<html>

<head>

<meta charset="UTF-8">

<title>emailformtest</title>

</head>

 

<body>

 

<form NAME="transferForm">

<p>

Requesting Branch:

<select SIZE="1" NAME="transfer">

<option>Select One:</option>

<option value="mgr1@mail.com">Org 1</option>

<option value="mgr2@mail.com">Org2</option>

<option value="mgr3@mail.com">Org3</option>

 

</select>

</p>

 

<p>

Shipping Branch:

<select SIZE="1" NAME="transfer2">

<option>Select One:</option>

<option value="mgr1@mail.com">Org 1</option>

<option value="mgr2@mail.com">Org2</option>

<option value="mgr3@mail.com">Org3</option>

 

</select>

</p>

<p>

 

<input LANGUAGE="JavaScript" TYPE="button" VALUE="Submit"

ONCLICK="location.href = "mailto:" +

document.transferForm.transfer.options[document.transferForm.transfer.selectedIndex].value"

NAME="Send email">

</p>

</form>

</body>

</html>

You don't have a form action="" This action should be linked to a file that is going to process the form. If you don't have that then you lots more work to do.

 

You need to find you a good form mailer to handle/process the form that will send 1 or more emails. Right now I cannot think of any mailers that will do that but that doesn't mean it can't be done. You could take an existing one and modify it to work.
