Contact Form 7 Issues Tricks and Solution

Send emails to specific people depending on selection within the Form: Contact Form 7 technique

If you want to implement a form using Contact Form 7 where  users will select  Tutor name or Department name and the mail will be delivered to that specific tutor or department then this tutorial is for you.

To solve the issue, I am sharing you what to do in the steps below

Step 1:

Create a drop down based on Tutor name, person name or Department name using the following tag of Contact form 7

*** You need to change the mail address and the position name I used based on your requirement.

[select your-recipient "CEO|" "Sales|" "Support|" "technical|" ]

Here is the screenshot for Step 1

Step 2:
Go to “Mail” Tab in your form and put the tag ( in my case it is [your -recipent]) inside the To field ( check screenshot)

** Please don’t get confused seeing the Red Bordered warning, I found it works fine 🙂

Work Done

you can check by using and submitting the form.
