Retrieving Lost Form Submissions

Are you afraid that you have not received some Form Submissions from your website in your email account? No need to worry, we will cover where else you can look to retrieve those missing forms.

To do this you will need to login to your website with the login credentials given to you from the Print Shop staff. To get started, in your Google Chrome web browser, go to “”. Once there you will see a page similar to the image below. (Image 1).

When you have arrived at this screen, enter the USERNAME and PASSWORD provided to you by the Lil’ Bubba Print Shop. Hit enter and wait for the next screen, Your Website Dashboard, to load completely.

Once your Dashboard loads you will be inside the “back-end” of your website. Here there are many different menus and tabs at your disposal. For the purposes of this exercise though, we are going to focus only on the Elementor Tab. (Image 2).

Elementor Tab is a subscription based plug-in that was implemented in the design and build of your website. First, click the Elementor Tab to reveal a drop-down menu with many options. (Image 3).

Once the drop-down appears you will see a Submissions tab in the list. By clicking Submissions a list will appear to the right in the main area of the screen. This list is all the form submissions (some of which are going to be spam) that have been filled out on your website. You can scroll through this list to retrieve any submissions you feel were not delivered to your email account.

Also, if you accidentally erased an email you can still retrieve the form submission this way.

After the list has appeared, you will click on an individual Email Name to be taken to another screen containing the actual form submission Image 4.

The form submission will look similar to the screen below (Image 5) but may appear slightly different depending on which form was filled out. Each form contains different requests for information, so take this into account when scrolling through the different submissions.

To return to the list of submissions you will again click the Submissions tab. This will return you to the previous screen.

After you have retrieved the information from the form submission you will want to delete the form submission(s) to keep your inbox clean. First you will click the small box to the left of the Email Name. When you do this a small blue checkmark will appear to signify the selection.

Please Note*** If you click the small box at the top to the left of the word “Main” you will select all the form submissions on that singular page.

Once you have made your desired selection(s) to delete, click the Bulk Actions tab to reveal another drop-down menu. Here you will select Move to Trash. Once selected, then click the Apply button to move your selection(s) to the Trash Bin. (Image 6)

You have now effectively retrieved Form Submissions and deleted old information to clean out your inbox. It is good practice to periodically go through this exercise to ensure the health of your website. While each of these form submissions are tiny bits of information, they can build up over time and slow things down. So come back every couple months to clean out your Submissions Bin.
