New in version 1.1 are two hooks for FormIt. If you use FormIt to make your forms you can now take advantage of both Eletters and FormIt. FormIt allows you to make easy forms and the build in email hook works but now you can set up an email as a Resource/Document and then log and provide the recipient a link to view the web version. Future versions will have an easy review log in the MODX Manager.
EletterFormItEmail replaces the default FormIt Email hook
The EletterFormItEmail hook, which is just a snippet, aims to be a drop in replacement for the FormIt Email hook.

- After your form is created you will need to create a new Resource and put in placeholders that would match the FormIt form. The Resource needs to have the Eletter TVs, be published and send a test.
- Then put in the ID of the Resource as the value for the emailResourceID in the FormIt Snippet call.
The following will send out an email of the Resource #10 after the form validated.
