    Visitor sends pdf links to themselves.

    Asked by teresalauer on August 05, 2013 at 12:30 PM

    I want visitors to put their email address and name on a form.  I want the form to have 4 file links to pdfs with text anchors.  Such as: PDF1  Then when the visitor presses the submit button, it is sent to their email address and a copy to me.


    I believe I can do that.  I just can see the link on the email when I receive it.

    Can you assist.


    Thank you.

    This is possible by adding a link of the said PDF file/s on a Thank You email. The Thank You email will automatically be sent after a visitor will fill in your form.

    You may refer to this guide on how to create a thank you page: http://www.jotform.com/help/211-Setting-Up-the-Thank-You-Page

    Thank you.

    Thank you.


    Actually, I am putting the jotform onto a mobile site.  So when they press 'submit' the 'pdf' links would be sent to their email, say gmail account.  When they get home, they could print out the forma and bring into my office.


    I tried a number of times.  I am not sure how the pdf-links parm is to work.

    You can add the form Autoresponder email with custom content to any form. And this is how you can add the {pdf-link} into that Autoresponder email body:

    It will be showing like this:

    So that user will be able to copy that link into browser and download their PDF.

    We can also manually add a clickable PDF link, but we will need the form ID in question to do this.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.
