    Hello Kay

    You probably need to create a new notification email.

    Perhaps there are some issues with the email notification. You can try to clear your browser cache and then creating a new email notification. To setup a new notification e-mail you can check our guide.

    If you need more assistance please let us know.

    1. To clear your browser's cache, please follow this guide

    How to Clear Your Browser's Cache (with screenshots) - wikiHow

    2. Is this the form your are talking about? If it shows the changes, then the problem might be in your webpage, please delete the current embedded form and grab a new one

    3. To resolve the problem on email alerts

    Go to your email alerts and open the email notifications.

    On the Compose Email window, click Delete E-mail button then click OK on the confirmation window to delete the opened Notification.

    Then you can add a totally new email alert

    I hope this helps

    Okay - yes it is the form and it looks correct there but when i link to it that page it pops up with a typo.  please explain step by step  please delete the current embedded form and grab a new one. Sorry I have no idea what that means or how to do it. If you could tell me step by step I would apprecitate it (this is at least the third time (maybe more) that I have tried to fix this.  IF you can fix it that would be great too.

    OKAY - my frustration level is very high.   I have:

    cleared my cache 

    cleared my cookies 

    tryied to log on from a brand new internet provider (was safari tried firefox) 

    NO LUCK 

    I redid the link from my site -  and it still happened. 

    After ALL that - i think the connection from my intro page (page 1) to the applicaiton (page 2) is not correctly connecting (it is picking up an old version).  I went to the embed form and the same link # comes up each time (I am confused why you asked me to "grab a copy of the code"  it the same numbers ???? 

    IT is still happening - the intro page is not connecting the latest version of the application.  CAN you please either fix it or the same person stay with me to figure this out (and also give detail directions each time).  I really dont think it is suppose to be this hard. 

    sorry but this is frustrating and i need to post this and go live (should have gone live last week)

    Hi Kay,

    Can you please confirm if this is what you want to achieve in your form?

    After user submitted their entries in page 1, they will now then redirect to page 2 which is "United States Lifesaving Association - Application and Curriculum Checklist", right?

    Is so, can you please check your form now if I did it correctly? http://www.jotform.co/form/32796127933867

    It is still the worng form - the intro page is correct then it goes to the application - with the typo.  

    Thank you for applying to theUnited States


    If you go straight to the latest form you will see that typo was corrected with others.  Any suggestions? Would it help if if change the name of the "good form" so you can tell (i am only worried -if we change the name and then  fix then we will have to fix it again with the corret name. )

    Okay - i remember reading you can check your histor - you all recently sent out an email about this feature.  so i went to look at the feature.  i found the glitch - i would fix the typo save it and all looks good. then i would look at preview and BAM theUnited - would come back. I fix it again and give to two spaces between and it would look good then i check preview BAM back again.... I would look at the history so i knew i made the correction BAM back again when i hit preivew. Wierd that it would look correct when i looked at the form...

    So i thought maybe it is some kind of formating issue. I skipped a line (thankful this was on the first line) fixed the typo and then checked preview and WOW in looks the same. I jsut log on from my website and WOW the same. I dont want to jinks any thing but i believe we solved the problem - so the first person who started us on clearning cashe - got us all detoured... Thank you to everyone who tried to help I appreciate your time and effort.
