FWP automatically know authenticated users's email?

We are considering whether to use FWP for a simple time recording situation, vs a small custom dev. FWP almost does the job nicely but we have a minor issue and maybe we've missed some config options.

The users will always be authenticated, and we want them to receive a notification/copy of each entered submission. However it seems the only way for them to receive this is to ask them for their email address every time with an "email" question. Is that correct? It seems given they are already authenticated there might be some nice way to either pick up the email automatically, or for the notification to work without needing to ask an email question. Possible?

It is possible to do that by implementing a custom form handler.

For authenticated requests the userguid is stored on the WebFormResponseSet and could be used to look up the user email

Re: FWP automatically know authenticated users's email?

Thanks Joe, yes we've use the submission handlers before - very powerful and certainly could do this. We just wondered whether this could be achieved without any coding this time, but clearly not.

I know the FWP product is no longer under active development, but if it does ever get any further work my small request here would be for the "Copy Submitter Email With Notification?" setting to be able to use the email of an authenticated user automatically without them having to enter anything.
