form submission that triggers email notification

P: n/a
Hi,

I just got a requirement from my HR department to automate their form
submission process and integrate it into the Intranet project that I
had just completed Phase 1 of. Because of the short time frame that
I've been given, a week to be exact, I do not have the luxury to
explore it on my own so here are the requirements:

1. Automate the personnel forms that employees use for changing their
information, which is currently in pdf format. 2. Allow the employee
to print it out on hardcopy for their own record keeping. 3. Allow
employee to submit the form to HR electronically. 4. Upon submission,
the application must automatically send an email to a general mailbox
in HR to notify them of the employee's change. 5. Allow HR to print
out the form to be placed in the employee's record.

Since I only have 3 months of ASP.NET 2.0 under my belt, I need all
the help I can get. You all have been very gracious in responding to
my previous posts.

Thanks,
Jonathan

you can add the email logic to your form submission section.
submit the data to your db, then once that is completed and successful send
the user the email.

I hate to bust your bubble, but if below is your requirements and you still
have to do all of it, get ready for long days.
I worked on a project like this and it took about a month to do with 2
developers. Actually it was for the HR department as well, I may even have
the code for it all actually. I'll have to check for ya and if I do, I'll
send it over to your email address.

my app did:
1) allowed all employees enter in their personal information
2) stored the data into SQL db
3) once the user clicked submit it created a PDF on the backend and sent a
confirmation email to the HR and the person filling out the form with the
file attached, but due to some issues the file was removed and everything
was stored in the db. So the user was then provided a link and so was HR and
HR printed out the information if they needed. The HR department was the
first paperless department in the company.

send me over an email at ig************@gmail.com subject = form submisstion
that triggers email. If you need any help on this or if interesting I'll dig
up my code from my project.
