Module 3: Access & manage form data

Set an alert

Do you want to receive an email whenever a user submits your form? Because our customized form solution relies on a SharePoint list to gather content, you can set an alert on the list to keep you informed of form activity.

To set an alert:

  1. Navigate to the Responses list
    1. Click Site Actions, and then click Manage Content and Structure
    2. Locate your form site in the site files
    3. Hover over the Responses list, click the down arrow at the right, and Open Link in New Window
    The Responses list opens
  2. In the List Tools menu, List tab, click List Settings, and then click Alert Me
    click List Settings,and then click Alert Me
    The Responses – New Alert window opens
  3. Set up the alert parameters and then click OK

In the Responses – New Alert window, your name/email address is added to Send Alerts To by default. Remove your name/email address if you do not want an alert for the list.
