    Umbraco Forms - confirmation email


    I would like to add a simple functionality in Umbraco Forms:

    After form submission , a confirmation email will be send to the person registered, only by clicking a link from this email the submission will be approved.

    Do I need to develop it by myself ? all the documentations I have found are related to Contour and not Umbraco Forms.

    Hi Ran,

    Just want to provide you the documentation for the Umbraco Forms. You can find the documentation here:

    I think you need to develop something yourself, I havenĀ“t heard about an function where the submission will be approved by click a link from the email. But you can send a email to the person who fillout the form.

    Hope the Umbraco Forms documentation can help you,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Apperantly (as for other Umbraco pdocuts) that documentation is quite basic and not suffient.

    I do mange to get the form record using DynamicRecordList GetRecordsFromForm(string formId)

    and also to get a specific record state using record.State.

    However, I could not find the following:

    1 . record.state - should be of type "FormState" but I cannot find where this type contstans are stored
    (tried to use Umbraco.Forms.Core.Enums.FormState.Approved)

    2. How do I modify the FormState of a record from a cshtml file ?

    Good luck with this. In my experience, it was far easier to implement my own forms using traditional MVC - or MV(Surface)C, in Umbraco's case). There isn't nearly enough quality documentation or examples for UForms to allow me the flexibility I need.
