I am trying to build an email alert to send to related contact. However, the contact field is on the parent object of current object. So I am thinking how can I walkaround this issue.

Formula fields don't take email as the return type so I can't build a formula field based on that. Trigger is viable but a bit pain now at this point. Is there any other approach rather than trigger?

    Community etiquette is to not solicit for "marking as right answer" except after getting acknowledgement from OP that your answer was the solution and where OP had inadvertently not marked the answer – cropredy Dec 22 '17 at 17:31
