Unable to get notifications by email on my Netlify contact form


I’ve read all the docs and troubleshooting but I’m unable to get the notifications (by email) that I set on https://app.netlify.com/sites/trusting-einstein-c68f09/settings/forms from my contact form on my Gatsby site:

My form does appear on my Netlify account but not the submissions.

I can’t see the hidden input named form-name and both the data-netlify="true"and the data-netlify-honeypot="bot-field" attributes are still visible in the form. So I think I did something wrong but I’m unable to know what.

I’m using a custom domain with another domain name provider.
I put the MX pointing to that provider in the DNS records on my Netlify account.

Thanks a lot for your help on this.



I manage to do it by myself :slight_smile:
I saw here https://codebushi.com/form-handling-gatsby-netlify/ that for Gatsby, we need to explicitly add the input hidden fields:

  <input type="hidden" name="bot-field" /> // if we need one
  <input type="hidden" name="form-name" value="contact" />

and now the notifications get sent :love_you_gesture:
