Fax a form?
 
Is there a way to fax a forms page or hyperlink from a webpage instead of having it sent to an email? I'm not looking to have info faxed to me but to a cust's fax machine. (When they hit the 'submit' button)

Either html or an internet based service would be helpful.

Thanks.

Re: Fax a form?
 
I have been hoping to find a post like this one for some time. I've had a very similar problem that I have yet to find a solutuion to.
The programs mentioned above are great for sending and receiving faxes but lack a certain functionality.
As I understand the original post (and the reason it caught my attention) the search is for a program or service that will take the response from an online form and automatically fax it to a fax machine. i.e. someone fills out a form (menu perhaps) and when they hit the submit button the results page would show up at the resturants fax machine. Get it? Is there such a service?
I have several business ideas I could run with if I could only find a service that does this. I have searched it for a while now and have come up empty.
Any suggestions or solutions would be appreciated.

As long as you're talking about Opt-in Faxing Only... and automatically Faxing...

I would recommend contacting the Fax services in the link I posted...
http://www.savetz.com/fax/

With Software and related Services...

There just may be some Hidden Features available in a few of those Fax Services that might Do the Job...

Or ways that a Software Freelancer can Tweak a Possible Solution... :)

Here's one way to do it...
 
Gregg,

Thanks for asking.

There IS a way to achieve what you want achieved - the information submitted in a form sent to a Fax machine. You need to expand your thinking to see it where it hides right in front of you.

Have the Form sent to an email address which Auto-redirects to an email-to-fax service like...

http://maxemail.com
http://www.faxaway.com

... and others. Google "Email to fax" or something along those lines.

I would like to know more about using a fax service. Though these days there is less number of fax users.

Well, many businesses still use fax. What is your intent?

Almost every legal firm still uses fax. And doctors, medical centers. Financial services, and still very much in use in Europe.

What exactly do you want to know? There is SPAM thing with Fax machines, you probably want to get permission to send a fax, but most don't bother.

It all depends on what your intent is, what do you want to do with a FAX?

PS. When my local library was open, the fax machine is one of the most used services.

Yes, you are right. I would like to use something like sending and receiving faxes from other sources. I need something which is for free at least a month. First I would like to try and then if I like then subscribe permanently.

Re: Fax a form?
 
I would like to set up a free fax service in my new office. Can you please help me to do that? Which fax are you using right now?
