Self Email Notifications

Tally offers 2 types of email notifications: self email notifications and respondent email notifications. With self email notifications you will receive an email each time someone submits your form.
Self email notifications are available for free to all Tally users.
Tally Pro users can fully customize email notifications.

How it works

Go to the form settings of your form → Self Email Notifications. Switch on the toggle on to receive emails every time someone submits your form.

Email fields

To field

The default email address is the one of the form creator (linked to your Tally account). When you add multiple email addresses, make sure to comma separate them and leave no spaces in between.

Reply to

This field will be empty by default. Only edit it if you want the recipient to be able to reply to your email.


The default subject is New Tally Form Response for @Formname’. Emails are usually grouped by subject in a thread in your inbox. To split them up insert a unique value in the subject, such as the Submission ID.
