Email notifications in Citizen Space

Rowena Farr -

Email notifications are used in Citizen Space for a variety of actions. This article outlines the different email notifications sent through the course of setting up and running consultations.

There are two distinct ways email is used in Citizen Space: for internal communications within your organisation, and externally, to communicate with respondents to your consultation. 

What is the Citizen Space contact email?

When we first set up your Citizen Space instance, we will ask you for a generic contact email address. We will also create a email address. The latter will be the address that all of your general Citizen Space emails come FROM and any contact form messages go TO.

For instance, when a respondent has entered their email address in order to receive an email upon submission of their response, the email they receive will be from the address.

Emails sent to the will be routed to the contact email address you have provided. You can change the contact email address by emailing
