Yes, action blocks! They bring something different to the mix because they don't have a visual representation in the form like regular blocks (text input, dropdown, checkbox, etc.) do. They have only one job: Triggering actions. In this case, sending an email.
Ok, but why would I want to send an email from a form?
Well, you can now use Tripetto to build a contact form that sends you a message when a form is submitted. And, since you can use multiple action blocks in a single form, you can also send a copy of the form to the sender of the form. Or, what about an event registration form? You can automatically send a confirmation message upon registration completion.
Alright, show me how!
Let's make a contact form that sends a confirmation to the website owner and a copy of the message to the sender. Below you can see how that looks in Tripetto. Or click here to open the form directly in the editor.
That's awesome. I want to use this stuff!
Just decide how. You can use them in the Tripetto studio where you can build forms for free in our online SaaS offering. If you are a WordPress user, simply install the Tripetto WordPress plugin in your WordPress admin (then you got all the functionality of Tripetto completely integrated into your WordPress instance). Or take it even further and implement Tripetto in your own application using the SDK. It's really up to you. Enjoy!
