    Email notifications: Creating a Notifier

    Asked by mauinews on November 13, 2014 at 09:07 PM

    I'm getting confused with notifiers, I don't want to be notified when a submission is made, I just want to receive the submission as an email. Is this possible?

    thank you,

    T. Uehara

    I understand what you mean. When someone filled up your form and submitted it, you will receive an email and that is called the email notifier. You will received an email that looks like these (with user provided answers)

    As you can see, it is both notifiers and submissions at the same time. But take note that you can see all the submissions or reports on the submission area on your account.


    Here are some guide that might be helpful for you.

    It's me again, regarding your question - Where do I put in the email address for submissions to be sent to?

    Follow this guide to create a notifier - Setting Up Email Notifications  (https://www.jotform.com/help/25-Setting-Up-Email-Notifications)

    On the email notification wizard, changed the recipient email with your email address.

    Recipient E-mail - Should be the email for you, your colleagues, or clients who'll get the response data from your form.


    Hope this helps. Thank you!
