    How can I have the submit button send an e-mail directly to me?

    Asked by pgary on May 19, 2016 at 06:00 PM

    I just created a simple quote request form using a template. I copied the source code and pasted it in our website. It worked great, but when I tested it and hit the submit button, I realized there was nothing in the code that would direct the information to my e-mail. Is there an easy way to modify the submit button to send an e-mail directly to my inbox?

    To receive emails when forms are submitted, you can just create Email Notifications. This will automatically send emails when data is sent.

    Unfortunately, since you are using the source code to embed the form in your site. This will not work. You will be require to remove the form and re-embed the form.

    Please note, that you could have conflicts between the code of the form and your site. For this, we recommend to use the iFrame code instead. It will eliminate any conflicts that may exist.

    Thank you Victor! That worked perfectly, and the iFrame suggestion fixed another issue I was having.
