    Im pretty new to Sitefinity so I apologize if this seems simple but here goes...

    I saw some very good posts from back in 2011 about using Forms Module Notification v1.2 to send email back to the person submitting a form.  I have it downloaded but cant seem to figure out how to install it under sitefinity 7.1.  Does anyone have experience with this yet?

     Regards,

    Gregg

    Hello,

    I guess - you are referring to this post:
    http://www.gsaadeh.com/blog/post/11-07-20/Forms_Module_Notification_1_2.aspx

    As far as I was able to check the source uploaded is compatible only with Sitefinity 6.x. We are not supporting 3rd party tools/controls/modules. You could contact the author of this post.

    In the newer versions of Sitefinity Forms Notifications are configured under Notifications > Profiles -> Default (check the attached screenshot) -  when you need to setup a SMTP server etc.

    Please check also this documentation:
    http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/setup-email-notification-for-form-responses

    Thanks Georgi.  

    That was, in fact, the post I was referencing.  I apologize for not listing it.  Everything you sent back makes sense, but in the Notification configuration of the newer versions, I still dont see any way to post a notification back to the person submitting the form.  It looks like everything is targeted at already knowing the email address, rather than being able to send a notification back to an address the form submitter enters.  We were hoping that once the user submits the form, we could email a thank you and additional information back to their email address they entered in the form. Am i missing a section of the configuration, or are there any plans to add a feature like this in the future?

    Regards,

    Gregg

    Hello,

    No Gregg - you are correct,  you are not missing a section from the configuration. This feature is not implemented in the current Sitefinity version.

    However you can implement it easily by creating a custom control for achieving this scenario, following this blog post:

    http://www.sitefinity.com/blogs/radoslav-georgievs-blog/2011/12/23/how_to_implement_notifications_for_incoming_forms_responses

    You can also download a sample project available at the blog post above.
