    Alerts When New JotForm is Submitted

    Asked by adamwillis8 on February 04, 2016 at 05:39 PM

    When someone submits a survey/questionnaire/or any form for that matter in Jotforms, how are the people receiving the JotForms alerted?  For example, a renter fills out a rental application built in Jotform.  We want that application to go to our secretary who processes the applications.  How is the secretary alerted that a new application was submitted via Jotforms?

    We would like to be alerted via email unless there's another solution.

    Every form has its email notifications. You can configure which email you want the submissions to go through.
