SmartBuilder v3 or v4?

Please note that this is the help site for SmartBuilder version 3.

The SmartBuilder version 4 Documentation and Video Tutorials can be found in the Help menu in the tool, or view the v4 Help site.

This object is used to launch the learner's default email client.  It can pass information directly into the new email, including the following fields:

  • To
  • CC
  • BCC
  • Subject
  • Body

This widget will NOT automatically send an email from a server.  Every server handles emails differently, and since there are no standards, it would be impossible for SmartBuilder to try to execute any server-side scripting.  If you wish to send emails directly from the server, you can use the URL Data object to communicate with a PHP or other language script executing the actions, which would have to be built completely outside of SmartBuilder.

Note, that you don't have to fill in all the fields, only the ones that you care about.
