If the form in SharePoint has updated by a person an email notification will be send to the registered email in SharePoint.

Can someone help me how I can do it?

Thank you in advance.

You can create Alert on list.

So, whenever anyone update item notification will automatically send to particular user.

To create Alert on SharePoint list please check this.


I guess you can create a simple workflow to send the email when the form is modified.

In order to send email, you can refer this answer.


We can send these notification using jquery. Below is the function for the same.

  sendEmail: function (webUrl, from, to, cc, subject, body, success, failure) {
  var urlTemplate = webUrl + "/_api/SP.Utilities.Utility.SendEmail";
   contentType: 'application/json',
   url: urlTemplate,
   type: "POST",
   async: false,
   data: JSON.stringify({
    'properties': {
     '__metadata': {
      'type': 'SP.Utilities.EmailProperties'
     'From': from,
     'To': {
      'results': to
     'CC': {
      'results': cc
     'Body': body,
     'Subject': subject,
     'AdditionalHeaders': {
      "__metadata": {
       "type": "Collection(SP.KeyValue)"
      "results": [
        "__metadata": {
         "type": 'SP.KeyValue'
        "Key": "content-type",
        "Value": 'text/html',
        "ValueType": "Edm.String"
   headers: {
    "Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
    "content-type": "application/json;odata=verbose",
    "X-RequestDigest": jQuery("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
   success: function (data) {
   error: function (data) {

Where, webUrl is your site absolute url. from is an empty string. to,cc are array of email ids. subject,body are plain text/html string.
