    We usually advise users to open up a new thread for each question or concern that they have. I have opened a separate thread for you from the original reply post that you made here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/333046.

    "Edit emails on all forms to make sure no specific information is used on them"?

    I believe what the statement meant is that you need to edit the email content in your notifications, because by default all fields and value will be added in the email content when a notification is sent.

    Here's an example.

    1. In your form builder, click the "Emails" to setup your notifications.

    2. Inside the "Compose Email", make sure that no field that you consider sensitive should be included here, the logic is that the email notification is only used to alert you of a new submission. So it is not necessary to include all the field values in an email. Unless you want to have a copy of the submission as a backup using your email.

    3. Here you will see the recipient address to where you want to sent the notification, either a notification to you or an autoresponder, it would be advisable to check where to send it so that you won't be sending unnecessary data or patient information to other people.


    I hope that helps. Let us know if you need more information on this.

    Thank you.
