Access field from a different table in a submission form


Question

Hello,

 

I have a submission form that requests users to select a value in a drop-down.

I would like to use the selected value to look up an email address, based on this value, in a different table, and populate a virtual field with that email address.

I would then like to use the value in that virtual field to send a submission notification.

 

How can I achieve this? I cannot see how to load a parameter from another table based on the value of a field.

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,
Julien

Hi Julien, 

It seems that you just need to use cascading fields. You can use different data sources for parent and child fields

Hello @logistics,

Just an update: You can use the Calculated Values. Calculated Value form element generates dynamic calculations that automatically update as users interact with your form. Similar to Formula Fields and Calculated Fields, you can construct the calculation using functions, logic, constants, values from other fields and SQL expressions to use in your Virtual Field. For more information about Calculated Values, check this article: https://howto.caspio.com/datapages/datapage-components/calculated-values/

Hope it helps!
