Form notifications

You can send notifications for verified form submissions in Site settings > Forms > Form notifications. These notifications can be sent using email, webhooks, or Slack. In the configuration options, you can choose to be notified for a single specific form, or for all verified submissions to any form on your site.

# Email notifications

By default, form notification emails are sent from, and any replies to a notification go to that address. To respond to a form submitter, you need to enter their address manually.

We recommend that you add an <input> with name="email" to your form. This sets the Reply-to value on the form notification email, allowing you to reply directly to the form submitter without manually entering their email.

The default subject for all form notification emails is as follows:

[Netlify] Form submission from YOUR_FORM_NAME form

You can’t override [Netlify] in the default subject, but you can override the rest. To do this, add an <input> with name="subject" to your form. The value of that input will be used for the notification email subject, prepended by [Netlify]. This input does not need to be visible to your users.

Here’s an example with an email input and a hidden subject input:

<form name="contact" method="POST" data-netlify="true">
  <input type="hidden" name="subject" 
  value="Sales inquiry from" />
    <label>Your Name: <input type="text" name="name" /></label>
    <label>Your Email: <input type="email" name="email" /></label>
    <label>Message: <textarea name="message"></textarea></label>
    <button type="submit">Send</button>

The resulting email subject is [Netlify] Sales inquiry from, and the Reply-to email is whatever value the form submitter entered in the Your Email: field.

For greater control of form-triggered emails, or to connect other services, you can use the Netlify app on Zapier or n8n.
