I have always used Freeform for a single form.

For a new project, I need the user to be able to choose two different organisations in a select field. Depending on the option selected the admin email notification needs to be send to one of two email addresses.

I tried using the following code which I made following some of the example documentation on the freeform site, but I am not sure if this is what its meant for.

   recipient1="Name 1|[email protected]"
   recipient2="Name 2||[email protected]""
        <select name="recipient_email" />
                <option value="{freeform:recipient_value}">
    <p>Your Name: <input type="text" name="name" /></p>
    <p>Your Email: <input type="text" name="email" /></p>
    <p>Your Message: <textarea name="message"></textarea></p>
    <input type="submit" value="Submit" name="Submit" />

Can anyone tell me if this is the best route, as it doesn't appear to work as I had hoped. Do I remove the email in the control panel for admin notification? or leave an email there?

Your parameters looks correct.

In the select part, it should look something like this

<select name="recipient_email">
    <option value="{freeform:recipient_value1}">Sales</option>
    <option value="{freeform:recipient_value2}">Technical Support</option>
    <option value="{freeform:recipient_value3}">Service</option>


<select name="recipient_email">
    <option value="{freeform:recipient_value1}">{freeform:recipient_name1}</option>
    <option value="{freeform:recipient_value2}">{freeform:recipient_name2}</option>
    <option value="{freeform:recipient_value3}">{freeform:recipient_name3}</option>

Hope that helps. http://www.solspace.com/docs/freeform/form/#freeform_recipient_name1
