Forms set up to email someone that's not a Spectate user?

Is there any way to set up a form ins Spectate to email someone that isn't a Spectate user?

We are wanting to set up an appointment request form (inside Spectate) and track the usage through Spectate, but the person that would actually be scheduling the appointments isn't a Spectate user. I know we can export the form data as csv, but I'd like a solution that doesn't require someone to complete any additional actions for the schedule to get the form.

Thanks,
Lauren

    Hey Lauren,
    It's not currently possible to just add an email on an ad hoc basis. It's an interesting idea, though. As a workaround, you could create that user without notifying them of the fact that they have a login.
    Thanks,

    Thanks for the quick reply Kat. If I set them up as a user, would I need to check the option to "Send email alerts"? when I'm setting them up?

    Yes, you would. Come to think of it, this would then also send the user an email alert, notifying that a login has been created for them...

    No problem. I can just send out an email letting them know they can disregard the email.

    Another approach might be to create a "listserv" user that can broadcast these types of alerts to multiple users at once. I'm not sure how many of these uses you have in mind.
