    How can I receive the form as an attached pdf via email, when the form is submited?

    Asked by jordinovell on May 05, 2017 at 08:18 AM


    I know there's a ticket widget, so JotForm is able to sell tickets for events. 

    Is is possible to receive the ticket, numbered, as an attached pdf via email, when the form is submited?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Yes, you can set the Notification e-mail for sending the form on the PDF form to your recipient e-mail address. 

    Firstly, as far as electronic tickets go I think the closest to a ticketing system we have available is the Unique ID Widget.

    Basically what this does is assigns a Unique ID per customer for their tickets but please note that this would be per submission via your form so the tickets would be grouped as 1 batch with the same Unique ID as I don't know of another way for this to be feasible at this time.

    Also, you can send the PDF attachment of your submission. Please follow these steps:

    1. Go to "Settings" > "Emails" page and select your Notification e-mail.

    2. Then, go to "Advanced" tab.

    3. Change the PDF Attachment option from OFF to ON.

    If you have any questions or issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.
