    How do you have more than one e-mail notified of the form submitted? Under notification rules it does not allow you to add or edit the e-mail that is listed there. Is there a way to have more than one e-mail address added to the notification rules?

      Unfortunately there is no such option at present which would allow you to add multiple notified email address.

      You can create a mail filter in your gmail account that forwards a copy to all the other people you want. Look at your gmail filters in “settings”.

    Thank you for this article. I have a pretty big form though. Is there anyway you can filter what comes back in email: Example – in your study, I would just want the time stamp and sample if they have any data filled in them.

  5. Thanks a lot! Works like miracle to me…
