    My CRM is downloading the PDFs using the https://www.jotform.com/server.php?action=getSubmissionPDF URL. How do I specify which PDF I want to download using this URL?

    For example, I have a form with 13 different PDFs in the PDF editor. The PDFs show different disclosures based on the user's region. Can I add something to the URL to specify which PDF I want to download so the right disclosures are shown?

    Alternatively, is conditional logic available within the PDFs so I would only need a single PDF?

    Unfortunately, while getting the PDF document via the URL is not possible to specify which document to get, conditional logic cannot be applied to the PDF document either. 

    We may however open a feature request for this, although we cannot provide an ETA, we would keep you updated via this ticket, kindly confirm so we can proceed opening the request. 

    Thanks.

    Yes, please open a feature request.

    Improved PDF handling is a "must have" feature for my use case. A quick search for "jotform pdf api" makes it apparent that lots of other people are wanting improved PDF handling, too, especially via the API.
