How would you go about doing this SendTo - groups problem
Posted on 2005-04-28
I have a Request Form(Parent Document) that has a SentTo Field - When The user creates the document they fill in the SendTo field from the address book. The field allows multiple. Then when they send it code populates a Outgoing Request Form with the data from the first form. The SendTo field controls Readers Fields, a forwarding Action, Reply Action.
It works great right now - with the exception of someone putting a Address group in. It sends the email ok, but if you look at the SendTo on the second form. It only has the value of the Group.
EG: Request Form
SendTo: DevMangers(Group = Bob, Jim, Chuck), Jaziar
Send Button Hit
Emails go to BoB, Jim, Chuck, Jaziar
but no on the second form
SendTo: DevMangers, Jaziar
It needs to have BoB, Jim, Chuck, Jaziar not DevMangers, Jaziar
I am looking for suggestions - I was thinking of hiding the SendTo field on form 1 and creating a false SendTo. When they hit send or after they enter INformation in the false SendTo it populates the real SendTo with the names from the group and not the group name.
So when the values pass to Form 2 - they are no differnt than if they put each in one at a time
