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.
