    Hi Alex, is it possible to send an automated email with DFSS when a condition is met.

    ie if you have a field document location and on selecting one of the choices it sends and email alert to a person or group.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    This is not built in functionality as JavaScript cannot send an email on it’s own. I think your easiest solution is to create a workflow that starts when a field is set to a certain value / changed, and then use a DFFS rule to set this field based on a condition.

    Another option is to use this solution: https://spjsblog.com/2010/06/16/send-email-with-javascript-with-the-help-of-a-workflow-in-a-dedicated-send-email-list/ and call a function from the custom js section in the misc tab with a rule in DFFS.

      Thanks Alex, the problem I have is that I don’t have access to SharePoint designer, can this be achieved via an out the box workflow?

      thanks
