Why do I need this?

When someone responds to your Google Form, you want to know who responded and what response was submitted. For this, you have to open the form and click on the Responses tab as shown below to see the responses. If you want to be automatically notified of the responses by email, then you can enable this by clicking on "Get email notifications for new responses" under the Responses tab as shown below.

Enable Email Notifications

After you enable email notifications, you receive an email as shown below whenever a new response comes in.

Email Notification

As you can see, this has several limitations.

  • The email doesn't display the response content, and you have to click on the link to read the response.
  • If you want others on your team to be notified, you cannot do that today.
  • You can not send another email for a past response

This is where the add-on helps. Using this add-on, you can configure whom to send emails and what to include in the email.
