    Attach uploaded filed in the autoresponse email.

    Asked by Magnus Westberg  on May 30, 2014 at 03:53 AM



    I wonder if there is a chance to automaticly attach a stored pdf-file (or other type of document) to a confirmation mail?

    For example:

    When submitting a form, the submitter receivs a thank-you mail with an file attached to the mail.


    Best regards

    When submitting a form, the submitter receivs a thank-you mail with an file attached to the mail.

    You form submitter can receive a thank you mail with a link to download the attached file. That is what you can do. 

    To do that here's what you need to do:

    1. Setup an autoresponse mail

    2. The file upload field will automatically add a link in your autoresponse email 

    3. Once submitter submits and receive the thank you message in the email you will see the download link included in the email.
