    Notification emails not sent when form is submitted using API

    Asked by oyewaiter on May 15, 2015 at 01:11 PM

    Just to update you, I just realized that there is no email notification as well when a form is submitted through API.

    I am getting email notifications when I fill the form online.


    Please tell me the solution to this problem asap.

    Form ID - jotform.me/form/51204376988464


    I am using POST API to fill the forms.

    strURL = "https://api.jotform.com/form/51204376988464/submissions?apiKey=20ef86bb5024da170e91c7561c85eddb&submission [1]=Rest&submission[3]=&Cname&submission[4]=&Cphn"

    Please let me know how do I get notified when form is filled using the above API.

    I am sure you are already familiar on how to send the form's submission data to PHP page (as described on this guide).

    I suggest you send your question instead to the API team at api@jotform.com . They are better qualified to provide the solution you require.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
