The email notification app will send you an email every time a new lead is generated. In other words, every time the contact form is successful submitted your email server (via SMTP) will send you an email about it.
Please keep in mind that if you enter incorrect SMTP server details, the email will not be sent. If you see an error message when testing your form, please consider testing your SMTP using an external service like https://www.gmass.co/smtp-test. Configure this option in the Brizy form after confirming that your SMTP details work well.
Here is how you can set it up.
Step 1. Access the App Integrations on the button of any contact form element in the Brizy builder
Step 2. On the Email tab click on SMTP.
Step 3. Fill in the info and Press Continue
Email To - this is your email where you want the lead to be sent, you can use multiple emails separated by comas.
Subject - this is the email subject you'll see. "New Lead" works well :) but it can be anything you like.
From Email - this will be the email that sent you the lead. Some SMTP servers require for this email to be the same as the username email. Or you'll even need to create this as a Send As email if you are using a free email service like Zoho.
From name - again not that important, but you can have some fun. You can put something like John Lead :)
Reply To - this is the email you'll reply to if you hit the Reply button on the email notification about that lead. You can leave this blank.
CC, BCC - works great if you are doing client work and want to keep them in the loop about the leads.
Meta Data - lets you include the following meta data in your email
- time - the server time when the lead was sent. Note that this might differ from your local time if you are on the east coast and the server is on the west coast.
- pageURL - the page from where the lead was sent. Very helpful if you have multiple pages that have contact forms on them.
- userAgent - represents the browser and operating system the user that submitted the lead has.
- remoteIP - the IP of the user that submitted the lead.
- credit - is powered by Brizy. Not mandatory, but highly appreciated. Only if you want to give us some credit :)
Host - this is mandatory. Here is how this looks in my Zoho setup example: smtp.zoho.eu. You'll get this info from your hosting provider.
Port - this is mandatory and it is a number. In my Zoho email set up it is 465 but it can differ from provider to provider. You get this from your hosting provider.
Authentication - this takes on and off values and it depends how the email servers are set. They usually require it but you'll get this info from your hosting provider.
Username - this is mandatory and represents your email. Here is how this looks in my Zoho setup example: firstname.lastname@example.org. You'll create this email in your hosting account or cpanel.
Password - this is mandatory and is the password you set for your email. You set this in your hosting account when you create your email.
Encryption - there are two options here SSL or TLS. You get this info from your hosting provider.
Step 4. You are done. Your form is connected with the Email notification app. Every time the form will be successful submitted you'll receive an email.
Keep in mind: You can set a custom template for your notification email. We are also generating short-codes for your fields so you can include the lead info in the email.
Important: You can format your email using HTML, use <br> to create a new line and <strong></strong> to bold certain words. Here is an example:
