    Hello maisongibert,

    Please be noted that if you use the {pdf-link} tag in the email alert, the text "Download Submission PDF" is generated automatically and not possible to change the text.

    But if you do not use the {pdf-link} tag and build your pdf download URL yourself, it is possible to add your own hyper link text. Please be noted that PDF link generates the download URL in following format:

    http://submit.jotformpro.com/server.php?action=getSubmissionPDF&sid=SUBMISSION_ID&formID=FORM_ID

    You can use the following code specific to your form in your form's email alert to achieve your requirement:

    http://submit.jotformpro.com/server.php?action=getSubmissionPDF&sid={id}&formID=42432612246952

    Please check the screenshot below on how to add your own PDF download link in your email alert:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
