    Hello webted,

    Unfortunately, attaching files to notification or autoresponder emails sent out by JotFom's server is not allowed. You can instead upload this file to your server then insert a link to it in the form's autoresponder email.

    So person will receive this e-mail with their inbox after submitting the form.

    Then, they will have to click the link to download your generated PDF file.

    Please refer this guide for more information on Creating a Form Autoresponder

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks,
    Jalaludeen
