Help / Setup email notifications

Automatic email notifications sent when the quiz is submitted

Notifications allow you to automatically email someone when one of your quizzes, tests, or courses are submitted. There are two types of notifications that you can send:

  • Participant notifications - a customized message will be sent to the person who has completed and submitted your quiz. You can share their results, thank them for taking the test or provide additional follow up information.
  • Self notification - a customized message will be sent to any email address that you provide. Self notifications can help you and other relevant people keep track of who has completed the quiz you created.

This guide shows you how to set up and share customized result notifications with quiz participants, nominees, and yourself. The email notification is automatically sent to your selected users when the test-taker submits the test.
