    How to setup an autoresponder for my form?

    Asked by Daniel on June 14, 2011 at 01:18 PM


    I'm not using your forms yet but I'm about to sign-up. I have some concerns though

    I was wondering if it would be better to have a "regular" autoresponder instead of this sort of "mailing enveloppe' that I suppose the recipient would receive. Is it what will happen upon submitting the form?


    Having a regular email saying " Thanks for your submission. I will get back to you....."


    Besides, having also the option to have - part of the email(autoresponder) - a copy of form submission


    That would read for instance

    Thanks for your submission. I will get back to you as soon as possible


    For your records, you sent:

    first name:

    last name:





    Thanks for commenting on this, if this can be done, or if not, is it something you will look into in the near future?

    Hi Daniel,

    You can edit the body content of the Autoresponder email and include the
    data submitted by the user according to your needs.

    To do this:

    1. Open your form in JotForm.

    2. Click on 'Setup & Embed' then select eMail Alerts.

    3. Choose 'Add New Email' and then 'Autoresponder Email' from the list

    4. Click on Next you will then see the autoresponder email content:


    Once you are done with editing the email just click on Finish to complete.
    You can find a working example of the form here:


    Please watch this short video to learn how to achieve this.

    Let us know if you have clarifications.
