    New Feature Request: A simple way to let us know to check Jotform for a new submission.

    Asked by squeakycleanhouse on April 14, 2012 at 03:19 PM

    I think it would be cool to have an "Email Alert" option along w/ Notifications and Responders.

    Basically, it would be VERY simple and not have an HTML edititor at all.  It would by default just include the name of form in subject line and body.  It would be either ON or OFF.

    Just a simple way to let us know to check Jotform for a new submission.

    We actually don't like to use email for organizing submissions but use your interface and delete the emails.

    You can actually do that using regular Notification emails fetaure. Just remove the body of the email from the textarea and you will have an email exactly as you describe.

    You can even add direct link to your submissions page so that you can click on it to see and manage it on the JotForm site. Click on "Switch to Text Mode" button and just put this on the email body:

    http://www.jotform.com/submissions/12345678

    (Replace 12345678 with form ID)

    While that's all true, I think it would be better if one could globally enable or disable notifications of submissions with a single click. In other words, have a toggle button labeled "Global Notification" (that can be set to either "Enabled" or "Disabled") in the My Forms page toolbar. This feature would be totally independent of whether any individual form has notifications setup or not.

    It should be setup in such a way that the user can choose not to receive notifications from a particular form by either clicking an "Unsubscribe" link in the email or perhaps via a button or check box in the form builder.
