You have turned your PDF forms into web forms and you're now getting submissions from your users or customers.

Everything is great except that you have to log into your SimplePDF portal everyday to see whether or not there's a new submission.

What if you could just get an email that a form has been submitted?

Read on to enable email notifications for your PDF forms!

Configuring the email notifications

Configuring email notifications is available under the ESSENTIAL plan

  1. Log in to your account
  2. Navigate to the forms view
  3. Locate the form for which you want to configure email notifications
  4. Click on the "Select email" dropdown and select the email to send the notifications to:

Configure email notifications for PDF forms

  1. Some time elapses... and the form is submitted: you get a new email with a direct link to the submission!

Email notification for each PDF form submission

I don't see a specific email in the list, how can I add it?

The notifications can be sent to any member of your SimplePDF account: simply send an invitation to the email and accept the invitation upon receiving it in your mail box.

The newly added email will now be selectable in the email configuration dropdown.

That's it! You're now getting email notifications every time a PDF form is submitted!
