    Hello, is it possible to control the pdf that gets sent after a form that has been filled out? Heres my situation, I cant figure out how to do this.


    I have a pretty long job application for a truck company, they are trying to get a section of the form to get its own page in the pdf that gets sent as an email attachment after the form is filled out. Hope that makes sense. 

    Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks

    Yes, it is possible to send a specific PDF attachment to your autoresponder.

    To clarify,do you have multiple PDF documents created?

    You may select which document you want to use in the autoresponder by enabling PDF attachment the select your PDF document.

    You may use the conditions to send a specific email with the PDF attachment.

    Thanks for the quick response.
    Let me explain a little better, Im talking about the PDF that gets created and sent as an email attachment after a form has been filled out.
    Heres the workflow and what im trying to do.
    It’s a job application for a trucking company.
    1. Person fills out the Jotform job application online
    2. The trucking company receives email of filled out application.
    3. The trucking company downloads the pdf of the filled out application from that email.
    4. Truck company needs to print out a page of that pdf to send to the applicants previous employer.
    I need to make it so that part of the application can get its own page in the pdf.
    Heres what the application looks like from the applicants point of view.
    And heres what the trucking company gets after being filled out. The Request from previous employer section (from the photo above) gets put into the PDF with other parts of the form by default. See how its on the bottom of a page?

    How can I edit this pdf? I need to make it so this section of the form gets put on its own page in the pdf.
    Is there maybe a way to make it look more like this photo bleow after it has been filled out? So the trucking company can send it to applicants previous employer?
    Hope that makes sense. Its kinda hard to explain.
    Thanks a lot for your time!

    I believe you are trying to post a screenshot of the PDFs that you would like to be attached to the email received when your form gets submitted. To include a screenshot in your reply, you may follow the instructions in this guide — How-to-Post-Screenshots-to-Our-Support-Forum

    As for customizing the PDF Submission attached, you can do that on the PDF Editor page of your form — How-to-Customize-PDF-Submissions-Report

    With regards to your requirements, you can do either of the following.

    1. Create only 1 PDF Document that will be attached to the email notification set up in your form. The PDF Document can be customized to have a separate page for the only page that needs to be printed out. You can also include instructions in the email or in the PDF Document itself that says, "Print page # only".

    2. Or, you can create two/multiple PDF Documents for your form. The first one can have the information of the entire submission while the other one can have the data that needs to be printed.

    After you have set that up, you can attach the PDF to the email notification set up in your form as explained by my colleague above.
