Looking for a way to reset a checkbox field that has a single checkbox.  It's a directory form that the purpose of the checkbox is to trigger an email notification upon submission - then the checkbox should clear, pending the next edit.  So I don't need to store the checkbox status, but need it to trigger the email after submission only.

You can use frm_after_create_entry and frm_after_update_entry to clear the field value after it's submitted. See this specific example to give yourself a good headstart.

will the same code work if they are updating the form and not creating it for the first time?

Yes. Check out the names of the hooks 🙂

where do you recommend putting it - putting it in the submit button area of the customize html for that specific form just makes it show up as code on the page.
