    Email delivery of the PDF version

    Asked by hoaklawfirm on November 06, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    We are just now implemenint Jotforms and are loving it.  However, I noticed that the emailed version of the completed version of the form is significantly different (and not as nice looking) as the downloadable PDF version.  Is there any way to have the PDF version that is available through logging in able to be emailed?  Or do we have to try to modify the email template to look more like the PDF?

    Please share the answer to this question, as I am having the same problem.  My client is complaining that the email she receives is unreadable.  How do I configure the sent email to be the PDF version?

    Here is our guide on how to do so:

    Can you set up your form to automatically email to the person completing the form? Then, they could print the PDF version that is automatically generated when the respondent clicks the "Submit" button. Thoughts?

    Let me please inform you that it is possible to sent the Autoresponder emails with the Links to PDF Submissions. You will have to add the following link to your Autoresponder email:



    You may also want to enable Show Headers and Texts option in Submissions Properties to show mentioned data in PDF submissions.

    Please give it a try, and let us know if you need any further assistance.
