    Regarding feedback or so functions for the forms, is there a way to create a mobile or SMS notification whenever a form is submitted? Thanks!

    Yes, that's possible if your mobile network provider allows it. Simply find your SMS email gateway on the following list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_SMS_gateways

    Then, construct your email address using the following format. You can also find that on the link provided above.


    Replacing the number with your mobile number. Example for T Mobile:


    Format: 10-digit cell phone number @ t-mobile.net 

    Example: 3335551111@t-mobile.net 

    After this, simply set this email as your form notification email recipient. Finding out E-mail Address used for submission notifications.

    Note: Make sure you switched your email notification to text format to avoid any issues on the formatting.

    Hope this helps. Thanks!

    Hello, I am trying to do this as stated above but when I am in the form notification area I do not see an option to change "switch to text mode" ...

    Could this be why i am not receiving the email notifications when I am testing it out?

    Thank you
