    How do I set up form that is submitted by email to take the form of a .pdf rather then in the body of the email?

    Hello Nuanceenergy,

    Please be noted that it is possible to send a URL to the submission PDF in the email. Here are the steps you should follow:

    1. Load your form in editor.

    2. Go the email template of the desired email alert.

    3. Move your cursor where you want to display the download URL and then click on the "PDF Link" from the left section of "Form Fields". Please check the screenshot below:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
