I'm getting a 404 error with the pdf link in email

    I have a survey form that emails a pdf link when submitted. It's been working well up to last night at which point the pdf link started producing a "404 Not Found" followed by "file not found. pdf-submission" followed by the number.

    I also have jotform's dropbox integration turned on and the pdf of the submission DOES appear there. So the pdf is generating properly and the form is completing properly but the link has suddenly stopped functioning. Are there some changes I can make or is the problem on the jotform server end?


    Thanks!

    Thanks Neil but the link you've provided doesn't work either :-(   Can you confirm that's the correct link - I see the jotform frame but no content on either Firefox or IE and on multiple machines. Just appears to be endlessly redirecting without ever pulling the support content!

    @outugo

    Our developers have recently rolled out updates to the My Forms section, and it seems like the PDF generator was changed.

    From now on, please use the following URL format to generate PDF submissions:

    http://www.jotform.me/server.php?action=getSubmissionPDF&sid={id}&formID=[FORMID]

    Replace [FORMID] with your form's actual ID. To generate a PDF link for a past submission, simply replace {id} with your form's submission ID.

    How to get the submission ID?

    This also worked for me:
