    How to create an email response after a form submission?

    Asked by TWISprogram on December 11, 2016 at 08:05 AM

    Hello there,


    I just upgraded my payment plan to Bronze, 

    and my form is almost ready to go online on the project website.

    I tested the form and submission works well, but I cannot find hints on how to add the functionality of 

    1) an automatic confirmation email sent from my custom email to the applicant who just submitted successfully the form

    2) a notification email sent from jotform to my email account for each new application submitted

    can you help me?
