    Hi Dave

    Thanks for asking. The recipient email address in the notification needs to be changed from yours to your friend's, so that whatever data is submitted will show up in his/her inbox.

    Here's how to do that:

    1. Login to your JotForm Account and click the My Forms link at the top of the page

    2. Click your form and then the Edit button that appears

    3. When the form loads in the builder, click the Email Alerts button

    4. Click Notification

    5. Click the Reply-To and Recipient Settings button

    6. On the bottom right of the envelope, in the Recipient E-mail field, replace your email address with that of your friend (Actually, if you would like to receive notification of the submissions too, that is possible)

    7. Click Finish and save the form

    That's it! Please see the following link for more information:

    As to a charge, so long as the total number of submissions made via forms in your account don't exceed 100 in a calendar month, you'll be fine. However, if they exceed 100, you will not be able to receive any more submissions for the month: You're not charged anything - your forms just won't be usable for the rest of the month. If you want to increase your allotment, that's where the charge comes in. Pleasse see our Pricing page for details.
