Question Type - Email
Home > (Select - Application Name) > Application Settings > Sections and Questions > (Select - Section Name) > Select - Add Question
The Email type prompts the applicant for a valid email address in the proper format: email@example.com. This question type can be used to capture the email addresses of additional contacts for the applicant that also needs to receive messages sent by the administrator.
Helpful Hint: When emails are sent from the site to an applicant, the email address that the applicant uses for their login id is the email to which all correspondence from the site is sent. You can also use the email question type to capture additional emails of the applicant that are different from the applicant's login email.
Once you select the Email question type, the field Include Contact in Emails sent to Applicant(s) option will display on the Add/Edit Question window. Choose the appropriate action for this email address.
Include Contact in Emails sent to Applicant(s):
- Yes - The email address entered for this question will be included in emails sent using the Notify button in specific reports such as the Applicant Status report and/or by using the Notify tab in the Notification center.
- No - This email address will not be used when sending correspondence from the site. The Included Contact in Emails sent to Applicant(s) options will not be present when you use the Notify tab or button in the system.
