    How can I automatically receive an email when someone has submitted my form?

    Asked by jmangino on October 16, 2016 at 11:01 PM

    I set up a form to be used to purchase books I authored.  I emailed to my husband to test the submission.  I never received an email with the submitted form but did see a message in my JotForm Inbox. 

    I would like to receive a message in my regular email.  What do I need to do to set this up?

    We are planning on sending a mass email with the link and then later place them on the website and blog.

    Below is one of the forms I created.

    I appreciate your assistance.

    Hello Jmangino, 

    You don't need to worry about it. There is a simple solution for that. It seems you didn't add your regular email to the notification list. I'm sending you a link contains a video that describes to attach your email to that notification list. 


    Hope it helps, thanks.
