In the Edit Form window, there are six tabs containing settings that you can change on your form.

Notifications can be sent to admin users when a form is completed. To access the notification settings, click the Notifications tab.

Recipients for the email notification can be sent by entering email address into the Email Recipients field, under the To/CC Recipients and BCC Recipients. Up to ten people can receive email notifications.
If multiple people are receiving notification emails, separate email addresses with a comma or on a new line.
Notification emails can be set to send from a predefined email address or it can be set to send from the email address that the user inputs when they are filling out a registration form.
To change this setting, choose a value from the select menu under Who is the form email coming from?
If you choose to set who the email is coming from, enter in an email address into the From Email field and a name in the From Name field.
If you choose to have the email come from the address the user entered into the registration form, choose The "From" information will come from the submitted form option in the dropdown menu.
The email address is set by a variable used in the registration form template. By default, the email information is contained in the appEmail variable. Insert this value into the From Email field.
You can also set the name of who the email is coming from by using the variables to insert the name into the From Name field. By default, the name(s) are contained with in the appFirstName and appLastName variables. Insert one (or both) of these variables into the From Name field.
If your form allows attachments to be uploaded, they will be attached to the notification email unless attachments are disabled.
To disable attachments, choose No from the select menu under the Attachments section.
Email templates for the notification emails can be created by inputting content into the rich text editor under the Email Template section of the notification window.
If no content is entered into the editor, the notification email will contain all information entered into the registration form fields on separate lines.
An auto responder sends an email to the user who just filled out the form as a confirmation. To change Auto-Responder settings, click the Auto-Responder tab.
By default, the auto-responder feature is disabled. To enable it, choose Yes, send an auto responder from the select menu under the Auto-Responder tab.
Similar to inserting the variable into the From Email field in the notifications section, you can set who the auto responder sends an email to by entering the variable name into the field.
By default, the variable name is appEmail. Insert this into the text field under The Form Field that the Email Address comes from.
You can set the email subject, from name, and from email in the fields below the address field. The From Email value must be a valid email address.
Similar to an email template for the notification emails, you can create a template for the auto-responder email by inserting content into the editor at the bottom of the Auto-Responder window.
CAPTCHA can be enabled on the form to help prevent spam from being input into the registration forms.
To enable CAPTCHA for your form, choose Yes from the select menu under the CAPTCHA tab.
For more information on configuring the CAPTCHA, view the CAPTCHA documentation.
The Form Content tab contains editors that can be used to input content into the registration form templates to be shown to users viewing the registration form.
Content in the Finish Page editor can be used in the template to show when the user successfully fills out the form.
The Header content can be used to show content before the form. Content entered into the editor in the Header tab is put into a variable that can be placed in a form template.
