Reply Document, pre filled out.

I would like to creat a default link on all pages that does a few things.

First, it takes the creator of the page as a variable, since many people can make documents it will change for each page..  

Second, it will make an active link that when clicked on will kick out a canned e-mail to that pages's creator with a preset message.  

No need for input by the user....

So for example, if you come to a page I created and click the link, it will send a canned e-mail to me.  But if you went to a page John Doe created, it will send the same canned e-mail to him.

Anyone have a desire to make such a beast?

I am not a Notes script person....

Points set for 100, will alter higher if requested and the scripts work. :-)

u mean u just want to have a button or an action hotspot on the doc that will send a prepared email to the creator?

Create a hidden 'computed when composed' field with the value '@name([CN];@username)' then add a button (if u want hide it when the doc is a new one) with this script:

Dim ws as New NotesUIWorkspace
Dim uidoc as NotesUIDocument
Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim doc As NotesDocument
Set uidoc = ws.CurrentDocument
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set doc = New NotesDocument( db )
doc.Form = "Form_Name" 'form that has the canned email
doc.SendTo = uidoc.FieldGetText("name_of_the_hidden_field_u_created")
doc.Subject = "A canned email"
Call doc.Send( True ) 'True to save the form with the emailed doc

Oops, just spoke with some of the others in this project, looks like this server will be accessed from the web (browser) and a client.   Are you aware of what might be needed if it was a web interface... (sorry)

ok try this for now, and tell me later.
@MailSend("Creator"; ""; ""; Subject; _
"Title of Canned Message"+@Newline; "Body" ; "")
@mailsend doesnt work in web app, and u cant specify the form to use!
My mistake, He stated "Notes script' so I thought this was not a Domino app.
