How to Get Google Forms Responses in Your Email

While Google Forms gives users the freedom to customize the content of any type of form, control over notifications regarding responses received is limited. By default, Google Forms does not automatically send email notifications for new form responses unless you enable it in the form settings.

And when you do, the email notification does not contain the form responses. This means that you will need to visit your Google Forms dashboard to view the respondent's responses to your form.
