This guide will show how to configure the process for sending an email to a user that has been chosen from a drop-down (dataset) field. 


First, you need to set up the drop-down field for the form. 


  1. Go to space settings > Value lists and create a new "Extended value list". Read more about Extended Value Lists here.

  2. Name the columns to the content of the cell. For example, change column A to “Name” and change column B
    to email.


  3. Save the value list

Configure the form with the drop-down field.  (Read more about how to set up forms here)


  1. Open the form you want to add the drop-down field to.

  2.  Find the drop-down field on the left-hand side under "Metadata fields (extended value lists)" and add it to the form.


  3. Rename the field to something that represents the content, for example, Users.



  4. Add a new textfield to the form and rename it ”email” and add the attribute “valueFrom” with the content:
    the Users.email, where the users are the name of the drop-down and the email is the name of the column.



    This is the result.




  5. Save the form


Set up the message event in the process. 


  1. Go to the process and add an intermediate event.

  2. Right-click on it and choose "Add new event trigger  

  3.  Add a throwing message and open the message menu by clicking on the arrow and selecting "Configure Message".



  4.  Click on the address book plus sign under "To:" and choose Form field. Select the form and the text field that contains the email address and press save.
