Form Emails

You may configure a webform to email a copy of all form submissions. The most common use of this feature is to email form submissions to the person who will need this data. Anyone can receive the form submission data without needing to log into the site daily to check the form for new submissions.

You may also configure the webform to send an email to the visitor who submitted the form so they have an email record of their submission.

Note: you must enable the Forms bundle to use this feature.

Tips: Consider deleting the "Submitted by user: [submission:user]" line to simplify the email template. This line displays the user as "Anonymous (not verified)" since all your site visitors are anonymous users so the data is not usually relevant. You may also want to change out the line "The results of this submission may be viewed at: [submission:url]" for "The submitting webform may be viewed at: [node:url]".
