    Hello blackcateventos,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you actually want to get your form's submission data in PDF?

    The following guide should help you export submission data in PDF document:  https://www.jotform.com/help/73-How-to-Partially-Download-Form-Submissions-as-Excel-CSV-PDF

    You can also add a clickable PDF link {pdf-link} in your submission email. When you receive the submission emails, it will have a URL and on click of this URL, the PDF with submission data will be downloaded. Please check the screenshot below on how to add the {pdf-link} in your email template:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!

    Actually, I am looking for the same answer.

    Yes, I am also saving my forms to a PDF format in a Google Drive location.

    I need the PDF file name to be specific to the user filling in the form, so that

    I can quickly find it if needed later on. Is this possible? Can you make a form field

    equal to the name of the file?

     

    Sincerely,
