    That's great and works fine

    Next question:

    I note that file name it creates is something like 3666922089.............pdf

    Is it possible to derive the filename from fields in the form.

    For example Firstname Last Name.pdf

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to rename the file name generated for the PDF. It is set to only to generate the numeric ID of the certain submission.

    Feel free to get back to us if you have additional questions.
