When you set a field as Required, the user cannot submit the form without entering that information. This ensures that fields containing important information cannot be skipped or accidentally forgotten.

The next settings we can change are the confirmation messages. This is visible to the user when the form is submitted.

There are three confirmation options: text, page, and redirect. Text will show a written message in place of the form. If you select Page, you may redirect the user to an existing page on your website. The final option, Redirect, allows you to redirect the user to an external website.

When you are finished, click Save Confirmation to save changes.

The title of the notification is to help you decipher between different notifications. Call it something unique so you can easily recognize it when you come back to it later.

Send To is almost always going to be set to Enter Email. Below the radio buttons is a Send to Email field. Enter the email address you would like the notification of a form submission sent to.

From Name is displayed to the recipient of the notification email as the sender. We typically set this as “Form Submission from [Name of Website/Form].”

From Email is displayed as the sender to the recipient. This can be left as is.

Reply To goes to the email of the user submitting the form. You can set this to the email field you added when you created the form by clicking the icon to the right of the field.

BCC is the other email(s) that will receive the notification.

Subject and Message fields are what the recipient sees when the email comes through. You can customize the subject line if you would like, but the message should be kept as-is. It is important because this code is what tells the form to include field content in the notification email.

When completed, click Update Notification.
