    Can a user submit attachments to the email alert?

    Our form is a job application. We would like the respondent completing the application to include their resume.

    Attachment on the form Notification/Autoresponder email is not possible at this time.

    BUT, you can instead use the Upload Field to allow the respondent to upload the resume file when using the form.

    You can find more details about the Upload field on this user guide




    When you create a new Notification Email, the link to the uploaded file will be included into the message. It will NOT be an attachment, but just a link the can be use to download the resume/file


    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need more assistance.
