ReplyTo property

EmailReportButton.ReplyTo — Text

Special value available in formulas:



The button this property is part of, enabling multiple checked items in the app designer to share the same formula and be updated all at once.

Consider the fields Field1 and Field2, which should only be considered to be valid if their values are greater than 4. Without using the Item value, the Valid property of Field1 would need to use the formula Field1 > 4Field1 > 4 and the Valid property of Field2 would need to use the formula Field2 > 4Field2 > 4.

Using Item, both formulas can read Item > 4Item > 4. This is useful if you have many fields and you want to be able to update their formulas all at once. To do so, click their check boxes in Calcapp Creator and make sure that a checked field is selected. Then, when you update a formula for one checked field, you update all the other checked fields too, which is a great timesaver.

Use Item in exactly the same way you'd use the regular name. Button1.VisibleButton1,Visible and Item.VisibleItem,Visible are equivalent, for instance.

The Reply-To field of the email. When an email is sent without a Reply-To field, the recipient is asked to reply to the address indicated by the Sender field (which can be set through the Sender property). The Reply-To field may be used to change this behavior, enabling email to be sent from one address while replies are directed to the address indicated by the Reply-To field.

The default sender uses the domain. Using a sender increases the odds that an email sent through Calcapp is successfully delivered and is not classified as spam. Consider using this property instead of the Sender property to direct replies to your reports.

Entering formulas in the inspector

If you use the inspector to enter a value for this property, you can incorporate formulas by enclosing them within {{ and }} markers.

Behind the scenes, Calcapp converts an inspector value with formulas to a single traditional formula. You can view this formula, or edit it directly, by selecting the ReplyTo property from the drop-down menu next to the formula bar.

The examples on this page use traditional formulas, where text strings and other values are joined together using &. To enter them in the inspector, be sure to enclose them within {{ and }} markers. Alternatively, enter them in the formula bar.
