    I'm set up to receive email notifications when a submission is created on my form, which is what I want to have happen.

    But I'm also receiving email notifications when I edit the submission, which I don't want.  How do I keep the email notification when submissions are created, but get rid of the email notifications when they're edited?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    As far as I know, there is no way to disable Email Notifications for Edit option. However, please note that we do not send Auto Responders on form Edit action.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    We've already discussed this topic more than a year ago.

    I assume you forgot about the said workaround, or does it not work for you now?

    Thx for that info!  I've just come back to using Jotform after being away for a year, and I did forget about my previous correspondence.  Thx for answering me again!!

    I made both my email alerts auto responders and removed the notification, and now it works perfectly. 

    The only other thing is:  Is there a way to remove the message that comes up and covers the form after I make my edit?  It says

    Submission has been updated...

    I figured out I have to click on Larger Grid to get it to go away, but is there a way to not have it show up at all? 

    Thx for your speedy answers!

    It is a pleasure to hear that Neil's solution is working fine for you.

    Unfortunately, mentioned update message is hard coded and that is not possible to bypass it. You can also reload your Submissions page using F5 key to get rid of that update message.

    Thank you for using our services.

    Can someone help me determine if my emails are auto responders or not? I want to receive confirmation of edits for the registar and nhs confirmation emails.  However, I don't want the lender to be notified everytime we edit a form.
