Can I use conditional logic in the email message?

Yes, you can use conditional tags in the email as well. They look a little different from the ones used in the form; [my-group-name] ... [/my-group-name]. Any content you put between these tags will only be visible if the corresponding group was visible during submission of the form.

Example

Let’s say you have a form with a drop-down field that reveals a group, based on the selection. Like this one:

Which department would you like to contact?
[select department "CEO" "Sales" "Support"]
[group ceo-group]...[/group]
[group sales-group]...[/group]
[group support-group]...[/group]
[submit]

Conditions:

Show [ceo-group] if [department] equals "CEO"
Show [sales-group] if [department] equals "Sales"
Show [support-group] if [department] equals "Support"

The email message might look something like this:

Dear [your-name],

Thank you for contacting us.
[ceo-group]Our CEO dude is a pretty busy guy, but we will try our best to answer you before the end of the year.[/ceo-group]
[sales-group]Our sales department will contact you soon and take all your money.[/sales-group]
[support-group]We are currently unable to process your request.[/support-group]

K bye,

The Company
