      Collecting data and sending it via email to a group.

      Post

      I wish to collect data which is stored in a form that is individualised and then have a script (?) to send this data and attach a file to a list of persons in a group of emails.

       

      The data needs to collect the record of each data set and only send this (form) to the email person....hard to explain.

       

      Not sure if this is clear but I am trying and very new to filemaker of any sorts.

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Yes, you can create a script that either includes data in an email, or attach a file to an email, and you can have the email sent to an individual or group of names.

           

          For sending email, you can pull down the File menu and select "Send Mail..."  This should give you some ideas.

           

          In a script, look at the "Send Mail" script step.
