If you use Google Forms to collect data from customers or employees, you can set up email notifications to automatically send a message to yourself or others whenever a new form submission is made. Email notifications can be a great way to stay on top of your Google Form submissions.

This article will explain step-by-step how to get email notifications for Google Forms, using the built-in feature of Google Forms. We'll also look at how Form Publisher can add some additional features to your Google form notifications, like the ability to attach PDFs or spreadsheets of your form submissions.

So let's get started!

How to get an email when a Google Form is submitted

Step 1: Go to your Google Form

The first thing you'll need to do is open up your Google Form in the editor. You can do this by going to Google Forms and selecting your form from the list.

Step 2: Go to the Responses tab

Once your form is open in the editor, click on the "Responses" tab at the top of the page. This will take you to the responses section, where you can see all of the responses that have been submitted to your form.

In the Responses section, you'll see a row of options at the top of the page. One of these options is "More", which has a three-dot icon next to it.

Step 3: Click “More” to reach your Google Form notification settings

Click on the “More” icon, and you'll see a dropdown menu of options that contains different ways to view your responses like downloading as a CSV file or connecting Google Forms to a Google Sheet.

Step 4: Enable “Get email notifications for new responses”

At the top of the "More" dropdown menu, you'll see an option to "Get email notifications for new responses". Click on this option to enable Google Forms notifications and your Gmail account will be automatically associated with your form.

The "Get email notifications for new responses" option will turn blue, and you'll see a confirmation message appear that says "Email notifications enabled". From now on, after every form submission you'll receive a Google Forms email notification at the address associated with your Gmail account.

So, that's how to get email notification from Google Form for new responses using the built-in features of Google Forms. Now let's take a look at how you can use Form Publisher to set up Google Forms email notifications with some additional features.
