How to set up email notifications for your online forms

After a visitor completes an online form on your eCatholic website, the submitted data can be emailed directly to one or more email addresses.

To set up online form email notifications for you and your team, follow these steps: 

  1. Navigate to the page that contains the online form
  2. Hover your cursor over the online form and click the settings icon that appears in the top right corner of the form.

  3. In the Form Settings dialog, enter one or more email addresses in the Alert Email Address field. Separate multiple email addresses with a comma.

The next time data is submitted to the online form, the email address(es) you entered will get an email notification that contains all the data in list form. Here's an example of the submission summary email sent to the alert email address for a Vacation Bible School payment form (created with eCatholic Payments).

Link warning for admins

Regular form and payment form submissions containing links will trigger a message to appear above the form summary that only admins will see:

Caution: This online form submission contains an external link. Do not click a link submitted via an online form unless you are sure the link is safe.
This does not apply to donation forms and this message is only for the alert email notification. Auto-reply emails being sent to users will not have this messaging.

HINT: The submission summary email includes a link to the online form at the top. From your email inbox, you can click the link to easily go to the form and download/view all form submissions in the Form Results Manager.

Set up alert email addresses for donation forms

In addition to online payment forms, you can also set up alert email addresses for your eCatholic Payments donation forms in the donation form basic settings.
