Overview
With Email Notifications for Google Forms, you can automatically send email messages every time a respondent submits your Google Form. You can notify the form respondent, your team members, or create notification rules and send emails to different people based on the form answers.

The notification emails can be customized and you can include any of the form fields, including Quiz scores, in the email subject or the email body using the {{form field title}} notation. You can also send emails in HTML for professional emails.

The Email Forms add-on can also send instant push notifications to your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone when a new form is submitted. The mobile notification can include answers to form questions submitted by the respondent.

If you have included any File Upload fields in your Google Form, the email notification will include links to the uploaded file in your Google Drive. Thus you can directly open the files from the email itself without having to find them in the Drive.

You can also include dynamic barcodes and QR codes in email messages generated from form answers.

(New) Send files to the respondent after they submit a form. You may attach PDF, Microsoft Offic, Music, Video, Zip Archives and other files from Google Drive.

(New) Send Form Data as Webhooks to an external web service.

Google Forms and Email Notifications can be used by schools and organizations to quickly communicate with parents, students, and employees who could be working from home during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

## Premium Benefits

Compare free with premium at https://digitalinspiration.com/docs/form-notifications/google-forms-premium

You can email up to 20 form responses per day with the free edition. Premium users on Google Workspace (GSuite) can send up to 1500 email responses per day while Gmail users can create up to 400 form responses daily. Gmail resets the limit once every 24 hours.

Premium users can create conditional rules and send customized emails to different people depending on the user's selection in the form. Conditions can be simple (like when the customer selects iPhone, send an email to iPhone support team) or you can use RegEx for specifying more complex conditions (like send emails to the Asia Pacific group when the selected country is Japan or Singapore).

The add-on branding (Sent via) is removed in the email notifications of premium users.

Premium users have the option to include email addresses in the CC or BCC fields including support for dynamic email fields computed from form answers.

Premium users can export rules from Google Forms and they can be imported into another form thus saving you the effort to write a new notification rule from scratch.

## Google Forms Troubleshooting

If you are not receiving email notifications for new form submissions, please try the following steps:

1. The notification add-on sends emails through your Gmail account. Thus you need to have the Gmail service enabled for your Google Account.

2. Ensure that your daily email limit is not zero.

3. Ensure that you are not using multiple notification add-ons. Go to your forms' add-on menu and ensure that "Email Notifications for Forms" is available. You can remove other notification add-ons.

4. Go to the add-on menu and choose Restart Add-on. This will reinitialize the email sending triggers for the form.

5. If you have Google Apps for Education or Google Apps (free legacy edition), you would need to enable the Gmail service for your domain.

6. Are are logged into multiple Google accounts in the same browser? Open Google Chrome, go to the menu and choose New Incognito Window. Here open the same Google Form in edit view and try adding a rule.

If you still have issues, send the debug logs from the add-ons menu.

## Multiple Notifications Issue

If you are getting multiple email notifications for every new form submission, please go to the Troubleshooting menu and choose Restart Notifications. If the issue is not resolved, go to https://digitalinspiration.support for support.

## Google Forms Tips:

A: If you use Salesforce, Insightly, Hubspot or another CRM, you can redirect all form submissions to the CRM with this add-on. Just get the email address for posting leads to your CRM and set up a notification rule that forwards all form responses to that email address.

Right now this is not working for me. When I click to run the extension all it shows is a help in the drop down menu rather than the list of options for setting up a notification workflow Am I missing something here?

We are a small charity and this app has been hugely helpful to us as we switched to Google Forms when the WordPress forms on our website stopped working. We can't afford the paid version but the free version has been working very well indeed for us. A couple of days ago, however, I hit a glitch in that the content of the form wasn't coming to us by email. I wasn't expecting a response from Digital Inspiration as we are not paying customers, but they advised me to debug and either that worked or they did something magic and it's all working again now. They were very helpful and responsive and I can't recommend them enough. I've read another review saying that they couldn't reach out to technical support but all I can say is that I did so very easily indeed and they responded quickly and to great effect. Thank you, Digital Inspiration!

I initially LOVED this app but after the forced update, I've lost all the automation I painstakingly set up. I've contacted support multiple times but no response after the initial contact. You guys are VERY QUICK to remind us of payments but your support is terrible. I will NOT be renewing my subscription until I hear from your company!!

We have paid for this add-on for several years. Since November 3, 2023, this add-on ceased to function for our organization. We have had sporadic issues with the add-on that have come and gone but never an extended time where the add-on didn't work. I can't find anyone to reach out to for technical support, to correct the issue. For this reason alone I should give the add-on 1 star or less. I'm frustrated and simply want the add-on to work as advertised. If the add-on can't or won't work as advertised, Google needs to remove it from the marketplace as the add-on is fradulently collecting funds from end users but failing to provide the specified services. I'm putting in a call to the Better Business Bureau and the US Department of Commerce. Maybe with enough agencies snooping around asking questions the developers of this add-on will get the hint to either fix the problem or close up shop.

We use this app to send automated conditional email notifications from google forms. It has become an integral part of our support service efficiency. I also recently implemented SMS notification automation (via Twilio) too. Support have been helpful.

Easy to use, straightforward, reliable and the best that there is out there. I m happy that I purchased it. Hands down the best add-on for the google forms ( and I have tried ALL the rest. YES all of the similar ones). You will not regret using it. Bear in mind that I am a BETA tester of several apps and this addon is to be recommended.

This plugin is NOT GDPR compliant! Digital Inspiration is unwilling and unable to provide a so called data protection agreement (dpa). I contacted their service and the owner Amit Agarwal multiple times, and they ignored ~4-5 emails. So if you are a European user, you are not able to use this plugin unless you are ok to risk legal issues due to GDPR. Can't recommend Digital Inspiration in general, a service and owner ignoring their customers is simply unprofessional.

Update: Problem solved! Thank you :) We've been using this feature for more than a year, always worked good but today my team and I are not receiving notifications from one of our forms. I already reached out to technical support, hopefully we'll get someone that can solve this situation, otherwise we'll have to look for other options as this feature is crucial for the proper function of our organization. I'll update with the resolution.
