What is an Email Alert?
The email alert is different from the Email element in that an email alert allows you to set up a static list of email addresses to be notified each time a record is submitted or edited for a particular form.
How do I set up an Email Alert?
Before starting, be sure you are setting up the Email Alert on the parent form. Alerts and Post-Processing are executed from the parent form and subform configurations are ignored.
To add an Email Alert to your form, please follow the instructions below.
STEP 1. Under the Forms tab, click Form Assignment.
STEP 2. Choose the form for which you want to add the Email Alert, and click Assign.
STEP 3. In the Email Alert section, add the email addresses you want to send the records to.
PLEASE NOTE: Be sure to separate each email address with a comma as shown in the screenshot above. The character limit for each field is 1,000. A message showing "Input size limit has been reached" will appear if you reach the 1,000 character limit.
STEP 4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Update.
