    Notification Email to specific email id

    Asked by eileen930 on December 29, 2016 at 06:35 PM

    I'd like to have the submit button work so that the form is emailed to me directly - is there somewhere to add an email address?


    Thank you,

    You can set up a Notification email to get a copy of the data submitted through your form to a specific email id.
    The setup process is documented at : https://www.jotform.com/help/30-Explanation-of-Email-Notification-and-Autoresponder-Settings
