Changing form settings around is a great idea for better interaction with your audience. While the default options might get the job done, it’s worth going the extra mile to create a more pleasant experience for all of your users. Let’s take a look at the different options you’ve got, and some tips on how to optimize them properly.
Notifications. What are they? Whenever someone submits a form, two messages are sent out – one to the user, and one to yourself, which are called notifications. Through this tab you can change how notifications behave, and how they look on both ends.
- Add the email address you wish to receive notifications. Multiple emails can be inserted.
- Change the message and header to easily recognize the message in your inbox
- The footer can show the entry ID and the IP which sent it, in order to have more info about your respondents
- You can also opt to have responses sent as PDF attachments.
Thank You Page. After the form has been submitted, the user will see a Thank You message. There is a handful of tweaks that you can apply to your Thank You page to customize your forms flow.
