How Problem Contact Emails work

ProntoForms sends a notification email to Problem Contact Email Addresses when one of the following data-processing issues occurs:

We recommend that you include the email addresses of relevant system administrators in your organization.

For example, if the FTP server for an FTP destination is down, the system notifies your Problem Contact Emails. The right person in your organization can then investigate the issue.

Set up Problem Contact Email Addresses

You can add Problem Contact Email Addresses at the team level and at the FormSpaceClosed FormSpaces are where forms are stored and organized in the ProntoForms Web Portal. A ProntoForms Team may have multiple FormSpaces, depending on their needs. Admins can set FormSpace permissions to control which users have access to the forms in that FormSpace. level. FormSpace-level Problem Contacts override team-level Problem Contacts. This means that if you have an issue specific to a FormSpace, the system only notifies the FormSpace-level Problem Contacts. If you don’t configure FormSpace Problem Contacts, the system notifies your Team Problem Contacts.
