How do I get notified when a contact submits an ActiveCampaign form?

There are two ways to send a notification when your ActiveCampaign form is submitted:

  • Form Actions - this notification is configured on the form level. A notification will be sent to the email address you specify.
  • Automations - you can trigger an automation to run when a contact submits your form. Please note that if the double opt-in is enabled, you will not receive this notification until the contact confirms their opt-in.

Form actions

  1. Go to “Forms” and click “Edit” for your form.

    Note: In order to avoid deliverability issues, use a “To” email address that is different from your “From” email address.

    If your “To” and “From” email address use the same domain, for example “@mycompany.com,” you may need to whitelist our IP ranges to avoid deliverability issues.
