Get email notification when people fill the Google Docs Form

Web forms in Google Docs are a great choice for creating forms like "Contact Me" or even for conducting polls and surveys since the software is free and puts no limit on the number of people who can participate.
The other good part is that all replies are directly saved in an online spreadsheet so it becomes all the more easy to analyze data.
Now if you like to know ASAP when people fill and submit your Google Docs form, here’s a simple workaround.
Create a new form (if you haven’t done that already) in Google Docs and close the window. Now open the corresponding spreadsheet in Google Docs and choose Share –> Set Notification Rules.
Select the "A user submits a form" option and how frequently you would like to get notified. If it’s a "Contact Me" form, the "email right away" may be a good choice but for polls, you may use the daily digest feature.
