Tips: How to send Webflow form submissions to different emails for free with a Gmail account

Have noticed in the Wishlist that many people is requesting the ability to send forms submissions from different forms on a site to separate emails. A simple (and free) hack to do this:

Use {{formName}} in the subject field under Webflow Forms settings. Then send the Webflow forms to an dedicated free Gmail account. In the Gmail setting, set up filters that forwards incoming emails based on the form name in the subject field to different emails. Have used this setup on several sites for over a year now without any problems.

Awesome trick,

thank you so much for sharing this with us :pray:t3:

Nice solution, I’ve also used Zapier in combination with a Webflow form submit to do this with also works well.

Hey what exactly did you do in Zapier to do this?

I guess if you or your client is OK with form data being scanned by Google then this is a workaround. Make sure you update your privacy policy.

This is a good point @webdev

@Chris_Pourciaux Set up a Webflow Trigger on Form submission, select the desired form, then in my case used email by zapier to the send the mail. Like so: Name your zap Zapier 2021-1...

Thanks I will try this!

Glad you discovered this too. I posted a detailed tutorial a few years ago on this here Multiple forms going to different emails workaround!

I know its wonderful to find a work around but I must say Webflow, I’m shocked that’s its been so long and you have not resolved/provided your clients with an internal working solution. I mean, 1.8K view on this thread alone!
