E-mail after form is submitted

Hi, can I also indicate another email address that will receive an email after submitting a form. Or is this only for the owner of the base?
Met vriendelijke groeten,

Well, Airtable can send form notifications to any collaborators on the base, not just the owner of the base. But it’s setup extremely oddly in Airtable.

Each collaborator has to make an independent decision for themselves of deciding whether or not they want to receive email notifications for that particular form. While they are logged into Airtable as themselves, they have to go to the form, and then turn email notifications on or off FOR THEMSELVES ONLY at the bottom of that particular form.

The form remembers ALL the people who have turned on email notifications for the form, so ALL of those people will receive email notifications upon form submission.

But unfortunately, Airtable gives us absolutely no way to see a list of everyone who has actually turned on or turned off email notifications for that particular form, which was a really odd decision by the Airtable team. (It’s probably because Airtable doesn’t support global values.)

So nobody on your team will ever have any idea as to who will be receiving email notifications when a form is submitted. You have to log in as each collaborator, go to that form, and see if email notifications have been turned on for that particular person.

Now, if you’re trying to send email notifications to people who AREN’T collaborators, then the easiest thing to do would be to setup an automatic rule/filter on your email account to automatically forward those incoming emails to other people on your team that you want to receive those emails.

Alternatively, you could automate something with Integromat. Whenever a new record is created in your base, Integromat can send the people that you specify an email to alert them about the new record.

Hope this helps! If this answers your question, could you please mark this comment as the solution to your question? This will help other people who have a similar question. If not, please let me know what else you need help with! :slight_smile:
