    Yes this can be done. To accomplish what you are looking for, you can setup a custom email body at the email notifier settings, using the toolbar on it

    Unfortunately we do not have built in feature to send SMS notifications but with a little workaround it is possible to achieve your requirement. 

    You can use your our own service provider's API to send submission SMS and there are multiple ways available to do this:

    #1. You can setup custom PHP thank you page in your form where you can read the submission data and send it in SMS by taking advantage of your SMS api. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page

    #2. You can also setup webhooks to send POST data which will send submission emails:  http://www.jotform.com/help/245-How-to-Setup-Webhook-with-JotForm 

    Hope this helps.
