How to setup an autoresponder for a form?

    This feature of Jot Form is the most confusing. I'm looking for an Auto-responder whereby when a prospective client submits an inquiry, the person receives an auto-response indicating their inquiry was received. Currently I receive in my email account the auto responder message that I want the client to receive. Do I have to log into Jotform and manually type into the 'recipient' field the submitter's email address?

    1. Open your form on the Form Builder
    2. Click on "Setup and Share" tab,
    3. Click on "Email Alerts",
    4. Click on "Add New Email" and ,
    5. Then select Autoresponder,
    6. On the right bottom side, (recipient address) select the form question that asks user to enter an email address,
    7. Finish and Save your form.
