    How do I link my form submission button to a real e-mail?

    Asked by callitowne on July 22, 2013 at 07:32 AM

    I've created a form, but wish the submission of the data to go to an e-mail account, not back to Jotfom. How do I do this?

    You can do that by setting up a Notification Email.

    1.) On your Form Builder, click on Setup & Embed, then Email Alerts

    2.) Click on Notification Email and click next

    3.) In the Recipient Email, enter the email that you would like to use to receive the forms. You can set the Reply-To Email to the Email field in your form that would allow you to be able to reply to those who made the submission.

    4.) You can edit the contents of the email although it has all the fields by default. Click finish.

    That's it. Submissions will still go to Jotform account, which you could simply delete, but with this set-up, it should also go to your email account. Let us know if you have further inquiries or should you need assistance. Thanks!
