Sending user entered data to me (via email?)
Nov 18, 2016
Here's the setup: I can only host my course on a site that has no login capabilities but I need to gather certain user stats: Name and Employer. The way I thought I might work around this is to create a course in which the first slide asks for the user to enter this info into two fields before they can continue on. The text they enter will then be sent to a designated email address so I can collect that information later. The question is, how do I do this?
There are a few posts in here that deal with auto-generating email popups, but that requires the user to manually send an email which I want to avoid. What I would like is to have a button that when pressed generates an email with the text from the two user fields sent to a specific address and sends it. Another option would be to have it store that data in some other location that I could access, which might actually work better but I couldn't see any evidence that this is possible.
I am not hosting the courses and have no access to those systems. Another organization is doing this as a favor for us so I can't really make any demands of them. Since this is the case, I really need everything to be self contained in the course.
