    When a user fills out my form and submits the form, can I send a thank you email with a pdf attachment automatically within the Jotform system.

    Hi webted,

    Yes, You can send the mail with what user fills out in the form to them with autoresponder feature from JotForm.

    see Here For How To Setup an Autoresponder Email.

    But, you can not send as a pdf attachments.

    Feel free to ask for any further clarifications.

    Thank you.

    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.
