    Hello,

    i made a form that inputs the form data into a PDF.

    How can i have that PDF be emailed to the email that i set when the user hits SUBMIT instead of just sending a email with the form data?

    Hello Lavish_Business,

    Thank you for reaching Jotform Support. If I understand you correctly, you wanted to share the form as a PDF attachment with the submitter via e-mail.

    You can add it as a PDF attachment in the Autoresponder mail;

    1- On the Form Builder, Click on the Settings tab and Emails

    2- Click the pencil icon near the Autoresponder selection

    3- Click on the Advanced tab and toggle on the PDF attachment selection

    4- Click on the Save button

    OR

    You can add as an URL link in the Autoresponder mail;

    1- On the Form Builder, Click on the Settings tab and Emails

    2- Click the pencil icon near the Autoresponder selection

    4- Click on the Save button

    Hello,

    I tried this methods but it was still just sending the form data in a PDF format.

    What I need is the custom PDF that I uploaded to your site to be sent back to me with the form data added to it.

    Yes I have followed that SmartPDF – I have already uploaded my custom PDF to the smartpdf and made the form.

    After I have my form made, I fill it out and it doesn’t out put onto my custom PDF that I have.

    I get a PDF but it is just yourd standard jotform pdf that is gernerated and not my custom pdf.

    This is where I am stuck
