    Default Derived fields for auto response

    Hi all,
    first of all I would really thank the staff for the amazing work,
    documentation and support for FormMail!

    I have a naive question: would it be possible to have something like derive_fields
    to be used in case of autoresponse?

    I think it would be very useful for instance to properly handle conversations with users.
    In particular I send to myself a mail with subject containing an unique id,
    and I would like the same subject to appear in the user's mail.

    In this way if the user writes to me I receive an email which belongs to the same thread!

    Regards
    Luca

    Default Re: Derived fields for auto response

    Hi,

    I haven't used the autoresponse feature, but I would think that the default subject for the autoresponse email would be the same as the form's subject, though I could be wrong since I haven't used that feature.

    What is showing in the subject currently?

    Ciao Ginger,
    thanks for the reply.
    Unfortunately the autoresponse feature has a different subject handling with respect to the form's subject

    Code:
    <input type="hidden" name="autorespond"
        value="PlainFile=filename,Subject=Your confirmation" />
    further infos are here

    If you remove the subject specification in the input the default value is "Your form submission"

    Ciao

    OK, I just assumed it would be the same as the form recipients' subject.

    I'm not at a computer where I can test it, but what happens if you derive another field name from your form's subject, and then try the following:


    Code:
    <input type="hidden" name="autorespond"    value="PlainFile=filename,Subject=%other_field_name%" />
    . . . or just . . .


    Code:
    <input type="hidden" name="autorespond"    value="PlainFile=filename,Subject=%subject%" />

    Just throwing ideas out there.

    Thanks again for the answer.
    I'm afraid the only result is to receive an email with %subjet% as subject
    :-)
    (I tried just to crosscheck)

    Ciao
