    Can jotform send automated emails?

    Asked by jfullan on April 04, 2012 at 02:37 PM

    Hello, I was wondering if my form could send an email upon submission. A department at our college created a form for students to enter their program, and the process requires references. I was wondering if in the notifications area, you could set the email recipient to be an email that is entered into the form. In other words, could students enter the email of their reference, and then upon submission, and email could automatically be sent to that reference.

    Yes, this is possible.  You will need to create an autoresponder email alert in the email alert settings of your form.

    You can follow the steps from this user guide on how to add an auto responder to your form's email alerts.

    If you have other questions or concerns, please do let us know.
