    Hello SidleD

    There are at least a couple of ways this can be done.

    1. You can include a link to the PDF in the "Thank You" message. (Either the 2nd or 3rd option can be used to accomplish your goal but the 3rd is easier. I will explain how to do it later.)

    2. You can insert a "Free Text (HTML)" field from the "Power Tools" menu and put a link to the PDF in it and set conditions under which that field is shown. A detailed explanation will ensue but in the meantime, please see this topic in our User Guide.
