    There are two ways on how to add your PDF submission on your emails. 

    Solution #1:

    When you edit your email alerts, you can see under "Form Fields" drop down the item "PDF Link". You can add that tag in your email template, that link add the PDF link of the submission made.  


    Solution #2:

    Here you can attach the PDF submission in the email, to do that, navigate on the "Advanced" tab. Scroll down. 

    Here you can see the option "PDF Attachment", enable that one. 

    Now if you want to include the static text or headers on your PDF submission, you can do that by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/305-How-to-Show-Headers-and-Text-in-the-PDF 

    If you want to fully customize your PDF submission template, you can do that by checking this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/384-How-to-Customize-PDF-Submissions-Report. Please note that using the "Customize PDF" feature will make your PDF template static, similar to a paper print layout, this means the layout will NOT adjust based on the content of your submission.


    I hope that helps.
