Emailing Response Document without Saving

Posted on 2007-03-30

Hello Experts!

I have a response document that is a feedback form with fields that have validation formulas. The parent document has an action that creates the child, and on the child there is a button to email the child to someone who fills it out.

It won't let me submit/send email with the doclink attached until the fields with validation formulas are complete, but I want to email it empty; i.e. send a blank feedback form that has to be tied to the parent.

I am thinking of two answers:
1. Is there a way to disable the input validations until the person filling out the feedback form gets it and needs to be forced to answer before submitting?
2.  Can I create a child from the parent progromatically?  I will need to stamp the parent that the child has been sent, and also when it has been completed.

1) Yiu can out all the input validation in the Query save function, so that it can only be saved wehn the fields are validated.

lotus script is the easiest way to acomplsh this.

This will allow sending the blank form

I hope this helps !

That doesn't work - I need it to validate only by the person giving feedback, but it won't link as a child without saving first.  I changed the validation formula to validate only when the username matches the person it was sent to, and it worked!  Thanks for your suggestion though!
