    Can I create a JotForm and then create and e-mail a PDF of that form?

    Asked by Bill Prihoda on January 07, 2014 at 02:47 PM

    In the long run, what I'm looking for is a way to create a JotForm and post it on the webpage.  When the form is filled out and submitted, I want it to create a PDF of the form and send that PDF, along with the form data to an e-mail address or to something like drop box.

    Yes, it is possible to accomplish what you need.

    - First of all you need to create a Notification email, that will be sent to you when someone submits your form. Here is how to create Notifications: Setting up email notifications

    - Then, while creating the Notification make sure to add the PDF Link variable while in the Compse Email wizard:

    That will automatically generate a link that will allow you to download a PDF file of the submission data.

    You can also accomplish the same in Autoresponders so that your users can receive that pdf file. Here is how to create autoresponder emails: Creating a form autoresponder

    I hope this helps. Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks
