    The submission data are being sent to our servers first. After that, it will be forwarded to the integrated Google sheet.

    What kind of trigger are you referring to? Are you saying that once the data is forwarded to the Google sheet, you want to be notified via email? 

    You can set up an email notification so that every time a new submissions come through the JotForm server, you will be notified. Please take note that it has nothing to do with Google Sheets. Once the form is submitted, it will go to the JotForm servers. After that, you will be notified in the email about the new submission and at the same time, it will forward the data to your Google sheet as well.

    If you are referring on something within the Google sheets action, then it is not part of JotForm anymore.

    Hope this helps. Thank you.
