How To Receive Form Submissions As Text Messages With Growform Via Zapier
Growform comes out the box with email notifications (sent to your account email address), but there’s much more you can do thanks to our Zapier integration.
Zapier is an integrations platform that makes it easy to hook services together (like Growform and an SMS provider, in this example).
