    Thank you for contacting us.

    1) Hey! I want the Send Button to send, but also be a Download Button at the same time and trigger a PDF download when clicked. How is this possible? I am a bit familiar with CSS.

    Currently, we don't have the function to download the form in PDF or in Excel just before submitting it. However, you can easily provide the option of printing the form before sending it, you can allow your forms user print their form and to do it please follow these steps:

    1. While editing your form click over the Submit button field and click Properties.

    2. Then, go to Advanced tab and turn on the Print Button option to enable the print function.

    Your form will look this way and your users will be able to print it before submitting it:

    2) In another form, I would also like the Thankyou Message do have a Download Button and also trigger a PDF download when clicked.

    To add a PDF download link to your thank you page, please follow the steps below:

    1. Click the Settings >Thank You section in Form Builder.

    2. In the Thank You window click Form Fields and choose PDF Link in the drop down.

    3. You should see this {pdf-link}. After that, please click the Save Changes button.

    4. This link should appear in your Thank You page.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you!
