The Form widget Email/Email 2 settings allow you to assign where the form is sent to and customize the data that is sent.
In addition to adding your form’s email settings manually, these options also use Dynamic Tags (Apply for Elementor Pro). These tags allow you to retrieve WordPress data, or from plugin sources such as Advanced Custom Fields. Items that have the ability to use dynamic data will have the “stack” icon beside the fields input.

Send Email Confirmation to the User who submitted the Form.
Email2 is very useful. For example, it could be a confirmation email received by your site’s visitor – immediately after he sent a form on your site.
To create one, go through the same process as above for Email.
Here there is an example how to build the entire email content using HTML:
<p> <p>You got a new message!</p> </p> <p> <p>Username: [field id="name"]<br /> </p> <p> <p>Email: [field id="email"]<br /> </p> <p> <p>Phone: [field id="tel"]<br /> </p> <p> <p>Message: [field id="message"]</p> </p> <p> <p>Don’t forget to call them back soon :) </p> </p>
