    Once someone fills out a form is it possible to have the completed form turned into a pdf and emailed to me as an attachment?

    Hi Scott!

    While a PDF version of the submission can't be sent as an attachment, with your Notification Email, you can add a link to download a PDF copy of the form. Just click on PDF Link under Form Fields in the settings for the content of the notification email

    Let us know if you need further assistance. Thanks!

    Thanks Morian, that really helps.  I noticed that the name of the PDF that downloads has a generic string of random numbers.  Is it possible to have the pdf file auto named something else?  Ideally I want the PDF named after the person who submitted the form as well as a timestamp.  Thanks!

    You're welcome. While auto renaming the pdf is possible with dropbox integration (see this thread), I'm afraid renaming it to include the name of the user plus a timestamp is something we need to refer to our developers as there is no immediate workaround to accomplish that. Thanks!
