Form Notifictions are Emails that are sent to let someone know that a Form has been submitted. Email notifications can be sent to the site Administrator’s email address, or any other email address, including any email captured within your Form.

You can create multiple Notifications for a single Form. For example, you may want to create one Notification for the site Administrator to let them know that a Form was submitted, another Notification sent to a supporter or organizer, and another Notification sent back to the person who submitted the Form. Each Notification can contain different messages and information, and all are sent together when the Form is submitted.

Default Admin Notification

Every Form starts out with a simple Admin Notification, sent to (and from) the site Administrator’s email address. The subject of the email is “New submission from {form_title}”. The Message contains all Form fields {all_fields}. This simply means that all data from the Form is emailed to the site Administrator.

You can edit all of this information to better suit your needs, or leave it as-is. You can also create other Notifications to additionally send to other people, as described above.
