    I'd like to send it to my email address, but it's going to the default address. What can I do?

    Hi Debbie,

    Our apologies for the confusion.

    That's how Test Email is designed. It will only send a test notification to your account email. You need to make an actual submissions with your form to test. Just simply fill your form then submit, it should send notification to the email address placed on your form notifier.

    Thank you!

    that makes it much more difficult, especially when your form is very long like mine is with lots of required fields.

    In such situations it's probably best to remove the "Required Field" validation from all the fields, run your tests and once you're satisfied reset the fields to required.

    Or, change the account email address temporarily and then change it back when you are done.
