PDF Attachment: Unable to receive attached PDF for submissions

  • Profile Image
    Asked on June 25, 2021 at 04:59 AM


    I am contacting you because our last assistance request was closed without reason.

    We noticed that the notifications sent by email no longer attached the PDF in the email.

    Instead, we have a link at the bottom of the page that redirects us to the PDF file.

    We really want our PDF file to be attached to the email, knowing that the problem is not the size of the file (approx 100kb).

    Can you please help us with this problem urgently, I don't understand why my ticket has been closed.

    We have been waiting 2 weeks for a response from a developer!

    we apologize for the inconvenience. I have checked but couldn't find any other forum thread of this issue associated with your account, so I'm not sure which request has been closed. If you have received a link please send us so that we can check that.

    In the meantime, I have cloned and tested your form and was able to replicate the issue, so I will forward this to our developers and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

    It has been created months ago...


    When I click on the link placed at the bottom it redirects me on the following url: https://www.jotform.com/answers/2976571-Unable-to-receive-attached-files-for-few-submissions

    But obviously, it says that the page doesn't exist anymore...
    I can see a "ticket number" on the link, maybe you can find the history with your internal tool.

    Hello there,

    I was able to trace the ticket. However, the one who posted the ticket has a different username (s**l**er_). Did you recently change username?

    Anyway, I have sent the assigned backend team a message to ask for an update. Once we receive an update, we'll notify you immediately.

    Do note that my colleague has escalated the issue as well.

    Should you have further inquiries, kindly let us know.

    Thank you.

    Hello Cecile,

    Yes I did, it was "skyliner_".

    I have cloned my form, created a new PDF template from scratch and the issue still occurs.

    I can see that more and more users are complaining for the same issue, do you have any news on this ?

    Unfortunately, we still haven't heard back from our developers yet.

    Please note that we cannot give any time frame for tickets sent to our back-end team since tickets are queued accordingly based on different factors.

    Nonetheless, I have made a follow-up to the assigned team. Rest assured that you will be notified here once we get an update.

    Your patience and understanding are most appreciated.

    Do you have any news ?

    I could take a look on https://www.jotform.com/answers/3195975-pdfs-are-not-attaching-to-submissions (similar issue), and your colleague said the problem was solved.

    I have tested on my forms and the problem still exists.
