    Hi,

    First of all, I apologize for not being able to find a solution to my problem myself. I’m sure you will find it very basic, but I have spent hours now trying to figure it out on my own and I really need your help.

    I have created a form, and I can see the entries, so that’s great.
    However, I am unable to set up a specific notification email.

    Here is what the support documentation says:
    “To configure an email notification, do the following:

    1- Navigate to the settings page for your form.
    2- Under the “Notifications”, click “Add new email” and give your email a name.
    3- Configure the recipient of your email. Either select a field to get the recipient from or select “Custom recipient” to fill one in manually.
    4- Configure the subject and content of your email. As with the success message, you can insert field values using the “Insert field” dropdown.
    5- Optionally configure a “From” address for your email.”

    Step #3 is where I fail. Basically, the email address that must receive the entry notification is not a field in my form, so how can I set it up manually? Is there a specific coding? I tried the following:
    myemailaddress
    {myemailaddress}
    {mailto:myemailaddress}

    Must it be a field from the form? In that case, can I make it invisible in the form?

    Lots of questions for such a basic issue!

    Many thanks in advance……
