This script provides instructions on how to make google form send email to multiple people when the form is submitted. Email address, subject, and message body are taking from an extra sheet in the spreadsheet called Settings.

Directions on Use

1. Create an extra sheet in the Spreadsheet called settings.

2. Set-up the headings of the Settings page like below:

3. Fill out the Email, Email Subject, and Message. You can enter multiple emails here, but only one Subject/Message.

4. Install the How to Make Google Form Send Email script with the directions below.

Code (see further instructions below the code):

//using the obtained settings to set up email info
function onOpen(e) {
   FormApp.getUi().createMenu('Authorizer').addItem('Authorize', 'authorize').addToUi();
//Easily authorize script to run from Form Editor interface
function authorize(){
var respEmail = Session.getActiveUser().getEmail();
  MailApp.sendEmail(respEmail,"Form Authorizer", "Your form has now been authorized to send you emails");
//grabbing general settings from spreadsheet sheet Settings
function getSettings() {
  var form = FormApp.getActiveForm();
  var ssID = form.getDestinationId();
  var ss = SpreadsheetApp.openById(ssID);
  var sheet = ss.getSheetByName("Settings");
  var lastRow = sheet.getLastRow();
  var lastColumn = sheet.getLastColumn();
  var range = sheet.getRange(1,1,lastRow,lastColumn);
  var values = range.getValues();
  return values;
