    How can I correctly set "Email Alerts"?... Can I set them universally, throughout all of my forms?

    Asked by feliciawebartizen on December 09, 2012 at 08:10 AM

    Dear JotForm,

    Firstly, I want to take a moment to thank you for your wonderful platform.  It is beautiful, efficient, streamlined & user-friendly... except for the "email alerts" section!?!

    I'm having difficulty understanding exactly what the interface is asking me to input, on the page that I've uploaded to this transmission (i.e. screenshot).

    Can you please explain all of the options on this page, to me, so that I understand each field?

    I'd like to set any/all forms submitted to email me.  I have a feeling that I'm confused, simply because I'm only wanting a very simple email alert (i.e. notification); whereas, your interface provides for more advanced options (i.e. auto-respond, etc.).  In case I opt for more advanced options, in the future, I'd like to truly UNDERSAND this page... exactly what each field represents, all "email alert" options provided, etc.

    Thank you.

    Felicia Dickson

    Hi Felicia,

    This guide may help: Receiving-Emails-on-Form-Submissions .

    And this one too -Finding-out-E-mail-Address-used-for-submission-notifications

    Please take a moment to review them if you haven't done so yet.

    By default , all notifications/email alerts are already setup to send to your jotform account email address (in your case felicia####@gmail.com). So, all of the forms you created are by default already will be sending notification email to your account email.

    Please inform us if you have further inquiry. on it.

    Thanks.
