    In notification emails, is it possible to embed the {pdf-link} underneath text so I can format my notification message like this

    CLICK HERE TO GET THE PDF VERSION

    instead of

    CLICK HERE TO GET THE PDF VERSION: https://submit.jotformpro.com/server.php?action=getSubmissionPDF&sid=221929630931295729&formID=23555213832955

     

    Every time I try to use the little link tool in the editor, JF adds a slash "/" which renders the link unusable.

    You can add the PDF Version link manually. Please use the following value for Link URL field:

    http://www.jotformpro.com/server.php?action=getSubmissionPDF&sid={id}&formID=[formID]

    Replace the [formID] with your form ID, so the final PDF link for your form is:

    http://www.jotformpro.com/server.php?action=getSubmissionPDF&sid={id}&formID=23555213832955

    I will also submit a ticket to our Developers.

    Thank you.

    That link should be clickable once the notification is received by the user (in an autoresponder) or by you, in an email alert

    @ pdfvg

     Actually I overlooked the fact that having  such TAG as clickable  has not been implemented yet

    However, you can even make clickable the URL link , as explained by Mike_T, you need to do it manually first, then follow these steps in order to make it clickable

    Paste the link into the email body messagge.

    Then , Highlight (or select) the whole URL, copy it, then click the link icon in the screen's toolbar

     

    Paste the copied URL onto the small Insert/Edit Link popup then click Insert

     

    If you have further questions, please open a new thread with your particular one
