Notification Emails are automatically generated when an Event Form is submitted. The email addresses listed here will get an email immediately that contains all the information submitted.
Points can be assigned for each Event Form. These are used in Sales Rep rankings.
Limit Contact Types allows administrators to limit when the form is available. If the contact type they are dealing with matches what is selected here, the form will be available and show under Event Forms in the app and website. Default is for a form to always been available. Select a certain contact type to limit. (Example: Demo company has a contact type of Current. Event Form called Renewals can be used for current customers renewing. Selecting Current under Limit Contact Types means the system will only offer the Renewals Event Form is the contact they are dealing with is of type Current.)
Post Back URL, Secret Key, Send Method are advanced features and will be documented soon.
