Within the Form Properties section, you'll find a field labeled "Send submission notifications to." By default, your registered email address will be displayed in this field. Remove the default email address and enter the email address where you would like to receive the submission notifications.


4. Utilize Multiple Email Addresses (Optional)

FormPress goes beyond by offering support for receiving notifications on multiple email addresses. If you need to receive submissions on different email accounts, FormPress makes it effortless. Simply separate the email addresses with commas (,) to designate multiple recipients for submission notifications.


Step 5: Modifying the Notification Email Subject
