Frequently Asked Questions

Does Formidable Forms have templates for automated emails?

Can I use conditional logic to send automated emails in WordPress?


You can with Formidable Forms! ✅ If there are a few typical responses you’d like to send, you can use conditional logic to send the right email to the right person at the right time.

For example, if a user responds to a survey with positive feedback, you may want to email them a thank you message. On the other hand, if they complain, you probably want the email content to offer a solution or apology instead.

You can also choose to hold or send emails based on specific form submissions. Conditional logic can be used for email routing too.
