    Asked by Keith Horton  on April 08, 2014 at 12:19 PM

    We are currently using Adobe Formscentral for our online resume.  The problem we have is that we want the person that receives the notification (our hr dept) to recieve the job applicant's uploaded resume file as an attachment to the notification email.  Does your system have this option?

    Thank you.

    Hi Keith,

    I have a form created here and the files uploaded will also be included on the email as a direct link not as attachment. It should work the same way.

    Hello Keith

    Unfortunatelly when receiving the email notification the uploaded files go as direct link, not as attachments.

    But I will forward this suggestion to our developers so they can analyse it and decide upon implementation. You will be updated through this thread once they have an update on this.

    Let us know if we can be of more assistance.

    We also have dropbox/box/google drive integrations. So, you can receive the uploaded files directly in your computer.

    If you use either dropbox, box or google drive integration you will receive two files in a new directory directly in your computer when someone uploads a resume. One file is a PDF File with form submission details and the other is the uploaded file(s).
