Web App Scanning without ticking off the business ....

good afternoon ... I'm relatively new to qualys, but I've started conducting WAS on a number of my externally facing sites. A few of these sites have forms for submitting applications. During a scan of one of these sites, thousands of email alerts built into the forms started messages to our digital marketing team. These alerts trigger whenever a form is partially or completely filled out. They were so numerous that they quickly started to kill the server's CPU.

 

Since form submission is critical to WAS, does anyone else run into this issue, and if so, how do they get around it?
