    Email csv file (or link to download) with notification email?

    Asked by John on June 03, 2012 at 08:37 PM

    I know I can go into "My Forms" and manually download a csv file but I was wondering can a csv file or URL to download one be sent with the submission notification email?  I would like to avoid the step of having to log into jotform everytime I need a submission in csv format.

    What you can do is create a public link to your submissions page and place that link in the notification.

    Here's how:

    1. Create the link as described in this thread
    2. Include that link in the notification 

    If you use the same browser each time, due to caching, you would likely only need to use the password once to view the records, provided you don't logout of the page. (Of course, this would also depend on the specific browser's settings.)

    If you would like clarification on anything, please let us know.
