    Submission by Notepad / plain text

    Asked by lafhab2 on January 14, 2017 at 06:01 AM

    It is possible to get a link to a PDF immediately after submission which is great, is there any way of getting a plain text (notepad) document the same way? I know this has been asked before some time ago, and it would appear that it may be possible using 3rd party apps but what I need is to just get a plain text submission directly from Jotform immediately after submission.  There must be a way!

    You can make the form Thank You message output in a plain text format only.

    If you want to redirect after submission, you can do so to a website page that contains only a plain text html page. You can do it using the redirect to external link option of form submission. 

    Hope this help. Let us know if this is not what you were looking for.
