How to attach uploaded formula files to autoresponder?

    Hello JotForm Support


    Our customers use a jotform to send photos to us. The file upload of jotform works fine
    and we receive these photos as attachment in an e-mail.

    Our problem is the following: Our customers want to have a copy of their form including their individual attached photos. The copy of the form can be made easily but we could not find a solution for the attachment.

    With the auto responder it's not possible to choose the uploaded files as attachment. Just a fixed upload can be set and that doesn’t help us. With the notification option it is possible to attach the uploaded files (we are already using this successfully to send the files to us) but there we can't set the person who fills out the form as a receiver (only fixed receiver e-mails are possible).

    Is there any workaround for this problem? Our could you implement this function in Jotform? We need either an individual attachment for the auto responder or the possibility to set the entered e-mail (from the formula) as a receiver with the notification e-mail.



    Thanks in advance.

    An Autoresponder email does not have Send Uploads as Attachment option. 

    As a possible workaround, you can use the Email Notification to send the email with attachments to your users, but the email Notification will have to be conditional.

    You have to set the value of the email field as recipient email address of conditional Notification.

    You can set your condition like this.
