Overview
Get form answers in an email after users submit the form. Send notifications to form respondents and different people based on form answers. Receive push notifications on phone for new form entries.
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.

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.

------------------

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.

Are you logged into multiple Google accounts in the same browser? Google add-ons may sometimes display an error when multiple accounts are authorized in the same browser session. Open Google Chrome, go to the menu and choose New Incognito Window. Here open the same Google Form and try again. Let me know if that resolves the issue?
