Hi is there anyway to automate that a copy of the form is submitted to the author rather than them ticking the box?

    Hi @Julieh

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You can set the form so they have to be logged in to see it, and then we can use the System Created By column to collect who submitted it and then, with an automated Workflow with an Alert Action, send them a copy of the information they submitted.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
