Introduction

Email Tool enables one to send emails as part of a workflow process.

You can also use the Email Tool in Post Form Submission Processing to send out an email when the user submits the form on:

  • Data creation, or
  • Data update or
  • Both Data creation and Data update.

Email Tool Properties

To (Participant ID)

Participant ID(s) according to the process flow it resides in.

Multiple values can be accepted by separating them with semicolons.

When To (Specific email address) and To (Participant ID) are both populated, email will be sent to both.

CC

Fully qualified address is expected.

Multiple values can be accepted by separating them with semicolons.

CC: lets you send a copy of a message to someone who's interested, but is not the primary recipient.

BCC

Fully qualified address is expected.

Multiple values can be accepted by separating them with semicolons.

Both Cc and Bcc forward a copy of the message to everyone you've listed. The main difference between Cc or Carbon copy and Bcc (Blind carbon copy) is that, with the latter, the recipients do not get to know each other.

Attach ICS File

Check this option to prepare an event and attach as an ICS file in the email.

When this attribute is checked, one will need to populate the details for the calendar ICS file in the fields below.

Important: The organizer or sender email must not be the same as your destination/recipient email. If sender and recipient emails are the same, you will not see the "Add to calendar" box in your email.


Images In Email Tool

In Joget DX, we introduced a new ?img2base64 hash variable escape char to convert images tag src in Rich text editor field to base64 data string so that Email Tool can display the image. The syntax is: #form.tableName.richTextFieldId?img2base64#

Note: Google Gmail will not allow images having base64 data.

Alternatively, starting from Joget DX v7.0.7, we can now easily embed images via the "Embed" option in the "Files" property.
