Auto Response Rule for Webforms

The Auto Response rule feature enables you to send automated emails when candidates and contacts for the custom modules are generated through web forms. When candidates are generated through web forms, you may want to send relevant emails to the candidates with different types of requests. In such cases, you can create an auto response rule with specific rule criteria. When the condition is satisfied, the corresponding email will be sent. You can create numerous auto response rules but only one auto response rule can be active at a time.

When the details gathered through the web form does not satisfy the Auto Response Rule criteria, then the email template (acknowledgment email) selected while creating the web form will be sent. See Also Web Forms - Email Notification 


Profile Permission Required: Users with the permission to create web forms can access this feature.
