Changing the Basic Admin Notification Email on the fly

Hello all and thanks for the help!

I have a form with one group and several survey questions. At the end of the form I have a hidden text field with the default an email address that I use to set the basic admin notification email. So far so good this all works great.

One of my questions in the survey is of type list radio with the option "other". If someone writes in this "other" box I'd like to change the email address in the hidden field. Or even better just set the basic admin notification email from the survey (but I don't know how to do that directly).

Any help would be much appreciated!

You mean you want to change the emailadress of the basic notification to the value, entered in the other field?

Your single choice radio other field can be accessed via
{Questioncode_other}
Questioncode needs to be replaced with the actual questioncode.
You could enter {Question_other} instead of the actual emailadress in the basic admin notification field.
The email is sent to the adress after submitting the survey.

Thank you for responding Jelo!

I'll try and explain with a little more detail. What I want to happen is the following. I just don't know where to put it or what syntex to use. q1 is my list radio with other and q_email is my hidden text field.

if {q1_other} is empty then {q_email} = This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. else {q_email} = This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In plain english, if the other field for list radio is empty then I want to set my hidden email field to one email address or if there is something in the other field (it won't contain an email address, just a comment) then set the hidden email field to another email address.

If the other field has text that means something bad happened and I need to escalate who receives the basic admin email:)

I hope this is clear and thank you for your help!

The best way is like using an equation question type (code : ADMINEMAIL)

And put this equation inside:
{if(is_empty(q1_other.shown),"abc@example.org","123@example.org")}

After you can use {ADMINEMAIL} for the email address of basic admin.
