Other fields in this section help you display a unique token number. Turning on the ‘Auto Reply’ feature generates a unique token number. This token number goes into the mail inbox of the user once he/she submits the form.

Toggling the “Redirection” field takes the user to a different page after form submission. You can paste the URL or the page link where you want to redirect the user after form submission. You can also avoid redirection by selecting the “None” radio button. Consequently, your success message will be visible on the same page.
