    email notifications -- settings

    Asked by fastlanetravel on July 04, 2012 at 12:02 PM

    I cloned a form... then edited it a bit and saved it as a new form.

    How do I update my email notifications to include the new info?


    I'm looking at it but don't see how to clear it and then start over... or update it.

    I can't find anything in your User Guide...

    Please point me... ASAP

    I fixed this my own way, but totally deleting the current email notfications and starting over... but doesn't seem like you should have to do it that way.

    What else could I have done instead, in order to update the notifications to match the edited form?


    AND SO ... when you update an existing form, do you have to manually edit every person's notification email fields?  That sure seems like alot of work.

    Let me please clarify this.

    We do update Notifications automatically, so you do not have to update your Notifications after each form update.

    However, this is not a case for Custom Notifications. In other words, if you change default Notification body, that Notification will stop updating by our system, and you will have to manage it manually.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know.

    Please take a look at the following screenshot. I am reffering to the content area of Notification.
