    My Email Notifications Aren't Working

    Asked by cmygsa on November 20, 2013 at 08:19 PM

    I have created/modified my email alerts probably a dozen times tonight and I'm getting very frustrated!  I continue to update them and your system keeps LOSING ALL OF MY CHANGES and reverting it back to a standard JOT FORM EMAIL!  Why is this happening?

    Also, I just noticed an email notification from another form that I haven't even touched got modified!  Why is that happening?

    Please fix!

    I tried doing it with your noreply jotform email and it still didn't work.  I can't use any other email as this is the email of our association.  Please look into it to get it fixed.
