We have a Joomla site with RSForms Pro and would like to set up an automated workflow to send out an email when someone submits to the form. We will have a CRM later this year, but need a temporary solution in the meantime. Is there a way to do it without the contacts being manually entered and triggered?

You can trigger a workflow by using our open API. Here is a table from this resource that highlights the differences between the API calls:

You'll build the workflow and choose "Email signup" as the trigger type

and then choose "All" (refer again to this article for help).

You can also visit for help with the API. 

Ultimately, when your people submit the form to Joomla, the API will be used to add them to the Emma audience and also trigger the workflow.

Please take a look at these items and let me know if you have any questions!
