You will need the following prerequisites:

  1. An Approval Donkey account (sign up for a FREE 30 day trial here
  2. At least one Approval Donkey Panel (approval workflow), see a guide here for details on how to one set-up
  3. A Device Magic form to add the approval workflow to (https://www.devicemagic.com/)

Step 1 – Copy the Panel Email Address

On the basis you have the prerequisites in place, complete the following:

  • Log into Approval Donkey, navigate to the Panel you want to add and copy the Panels Email address

This can be done like any copy function e.g. Select and Ctrl C or right click and ‘copy email address’

Step 2 – Paste the Panel Email address into Device Magic

  • If not already, sign into your Device Magic account and navigate to the Forms section
  • From the 'More Options' menu select 'Destinations' and select 'New Destination'
  • Select the Email option and then the .txt format
  • Configure the remaining options to your requirements
  • In section 5 you can select 'Render as HTML' to keep the form formatting
  • Paste the Panel email address in the Destination Email section as per below
  • Select 'Create Destination' and that’s it, all done

Now whenever your form is completed it automatically goes through the Approval Donkey workflow you have just added. Give it a test run now.

Quick tip: Include a field to capture the submitter email address so you can forward status updates to them or set-up a Zap with Zapier to automate it.
