Users expect a success message or an account verification email upon registration. A verification email boosts the confidence of the user. With verification email users gain trust in your brand. In this article, we will be learning to configure WordPress form notification emails to users and admin.
Every successful registration sends an email to user and the admin. However, you can configure WordPress form notification emails templates for users and admins differently.

From the RegistrationMagic plugin on your WordPress dashboard go to “All Forms”. Click on “Dashboard” from your form.
The “Dashboard” page allows you to modify, manage and incorporate settings for different conditions.
Navigate into “Email Templates” under the “Configure” section.
You can configure WordPress form notification emails to users and admin from this page. You can also modify the Email Templates sent out to users and admin.
Configuring Notification Email for User
The first field is termed “New User Email Subject”. In the input box enter the subject of the email to be sent to the new user.
Next field configures the text that will be sent to the user via email. This email body is supported by HTML and Mail Merge. You can add media files, rich text and other elements for customizing the message.
Scroll down to User Verification Email subject field. This is the subject of the email sent to the user for verification. The user verification email body is customizable. The content is delivered to the user for account verification.
You can configure the code to auto-expire the link after certain time period. To make this work you must configure “User Account Activation Method”. Navigate to “User Accounts” from “Global Settings”.
From “User Accounts” you can activate and deactivate accounts. You can also send verification emails to your users.
The number “48” indicates the hours after which the link will be going to expire. Till the expiry time, users can follow the link to activate their account.
Configuring Notification Email for Admin
Let’s configure the emails sent to the admin on user activation.
The first field configures “Active User Email Subject”. Fill the input box with the subject of the email to be sent to the admin. The next field configures the text sent via email to the admin. This email body is supported by HTML and Mail Merge. It contains the activation link to active users, as well.
You can add media files or customize the text with Rich Text. The sender email of this content will be the admin email on your WordPress dashboard.
Important Note: The website admin will receive latest form submission details and the user activation email as two separate emails.
The next field configures the subject of the email which admin receives with a new submission. The admin will receive emails with attached submission, history, and user data, based on your selection of email codes. Click on Save.
