    Submit and then receive pdf copy of form

    Asked by pepjf on September 12, 2013 at 03:15 AM


    I have this form here: http://form.jotform.co/form/32541157510849

    Currently, it has a Print and Submit button which works, but most of the users won't have access to a printer readily.  I wanted to change the button to just "Submit" - but are they able to get a pdf of the entire form (and not just the fields that they completed) sent to the email indicated on their form on clicking the submit button.  Can this pdf also be sent along with their notification to my email as well?


    Thanks a lot!

    It possible to set this that when the form is submitted, the user will receive the notification email which will have a link to PDF with submission data.

    Here is how you can achieve this:

    1. Load your form in form editor.

    2. Click on "Email Alerts" under "Setup & Embed" tab.

    3. Then click on "Add New Email".

    4. Add a new "Autoresponder"

    5. In the body of the email content, you can add PDF link {pdf-link}

    6. When form submitter will receive the autoresponder email, they will get the link to a pdf with the form submission data.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you!

    What I was asking for is for the entire information on the Jot form to be printed along with their responses as they have been inputed (into pdf)- so not just the submission data. Is this possible to do?

    Thanks for contacting us.

    Let me inform you that what you want to achieve is not possible. That is the way this function works currently, it only includes the completed fields in the PDF file. so the only solution woulbe the suggested by my colleague previously.

    Let us know if you need further assistance about this topic.
