    Unfortunately uploaded files can not be included in the email as an attachement.
    You can however include a link in the body of the email which would redirect
    them to the uploaded file.

    I noticed that in the body of the notification email of your form the variable for the
    uploaded file is missing. Please add the following variable in the body of the
    notification email to include the link for the uploaded file.


    To do this:
    1. Open your form in JotForm
    2. Click on 'Setup & Embed'
    3. Select 'Emai Alerts' > 'Notification'
    4. In the body of the email add the email variable:


    You may also click on 'Juntar Documentos' from the form fields
    displayed to the left of the window.

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if you have clarifications.
