    Form, Checkbox, Mailto:

    Hi everyone!

    I have been having a huge problem where I can't figure out. I'm sure its quite simple and I've overlooked and over-analyzed this.

    I want to create a form, and within that form, it would have multiple checkboxes.

    Each checkbox would be connected to an e-mail address

    Upon choosing checkbox (or multiple), an invoice of the form would be sent to e-mail address that was selected.

    ---------------------------

    Let me clarify through example!

    For this example, I would like to imagine that an individual is filling out a event request form.

    Upon reaching the checkbox area, each checkbox would be for services such as: sanitation (mailto: someperson@sanitation.com), law enforcement (mailto: someperson@lawenforcement.com), audio visual (mailto:someperson@audiovisual.com), photographers (mailto:someperson@photography.com), and so on.

    So lets say that the individual checks off audio visual and photographers. The completed form (like an invoice) upon pressing submit would be sent to both the audiovisual and photographers via e-mail.

    ------------

    Primarily, my question is, how to attach the checkbox with an e-mail address if and when it is checked.

    Any help would be great! Thank you in advance!
    - Justin

    Will there be "groups" of them ...
    Example, you might have 3 photographers, 4 sanitation, and 1 law officer ...

    If I click "photographers", would it go to all 3 of them, or does it have to
    break-down into another list of individual photographers?

    Oh wow, good question.

    I never really thought of that

    Umm.. I think at this point I would like it to be sent to all the group members.

    Like how you said, "If I click 'photographers', would it go to all 3 of them" --- it would.

    But possibly in the future, I may consider--- rather may need to, depending on what my boss wants, need to have it only sent to 'individual photographers' on a break-down list.

    That is a amazing question. Thank you mliseim!

    Would that be possible as well?

    Sure it would be possible, but it adds a little bit to the programming.

    Can you show us the HTML page you have right now, the page without those checkboxes?
