Subject

Here you can enter a static subject of your choice; this will be used for every email sent by this button.

Data field

The subject can also be determined dynamically from the value of a data field. To do so, click on the "Field" checkbox, and select the required data field from the drop-down list.

Page

Select the view page you want to send from this list. The values of the current data record will be applied automatically. Please note that all recipients of the email will need to have read access to the page. If the intended recipient does not have read access to the page, then the email will not be sent.

Text

If this option is selected, the values in the view and edit fields will be displayed in text format, and separated by tab stops.

SMS

If this option is selected, all line breaks will be removed, and the complete text will be placed in the subject, and it will be sent via SMS, if sending SMS messages has been configured by your telecommunications service provider.
