    How can I get an email notifying me of a recent submission?

    Asked by earthhomecleaning on November 04, 2015 at 11:41 PM

    I recently created an account with you guys, specifically to find a job application template.  I would like to know immediately in my personal email inbox, if an application has been submitted to me.

    1. Click the "Emails" button on the builder toolbar.

    2. Click on "Add New Email".


    3. Select "Notification Email" option & click next.


    4. Select/choose fields for the "Sender Details" and fill out the "Recipient E-mail" with an appropriate email address. Click next.

    Hello earthhomecleaning,

    You should actually add a form notification email alert in your form and set the "Recipient Email" field to any desired email address. The following guides should help you:

    Set recipient email address:  http://www.jotform.com/help/41-Finding-out-E-mail-Address-used-for-submission-notifications 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
