Let’s say, you and your team members made an awesome survey with Google Forms and the responses are coming in good numbers. But there is a minor inconvenience that you can’t edit email notifications in Google Forms. This is important because you want to add your team members’ emails so that, they also will be notified whenever a response is submitted.

Google Forms can give notifications to only the administrator of the form and rest of the team members get zilch. However, Pabbly Form Builder, allows you to set up trigger emails for you and your teammates whenever a response is submitted.

You may integrate some add-ons in Google Forms to get your work done but these are not free and defeat the whole purpose in the long run.
