    Hello zaryab.

    Yes, you can achieve this by adding a Get Referrer widget to your form (manual: How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form)

    After adding the widget to your form, you can then use it to display the URL wherever you want in your email notification - by editing the body or subject of your email notification. You can edit your Email Notifications from Setup & Embed > Emails > clicking on the notification that you wish to edit.

    Essentially, you need to add the Name of the Get Referrer field as it is named in your form, and the value of this field will be automatically inserted in that part of the text. In my example, the Name is {referrer}, so I needed to put {referrer} in the Subject line.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance with this, we will be happy to help.
