    Hello Benvanvuuren,

    Please select your form and click 'Emails' from the toolbar. Then click 'edit' for the 'Notification1'.

    You will see that the header of the email can be selected and updated as in the screenshot.

    Hello Benvanvuuren,

    If I understand your requirement correctly, you want to change the subject line of the submission email you receive after the form is submitted. Is that correct?

    Please check the screenshot below how to change the email subject:
