    Adding A PDF Version of the Submission To Email Notifications

    Asked by Roderick  on January 12, 2015 at 09:12 AM

    User goes to the website and fills out a form.

    Upon hitting submit, the information in the form is compiled into a pdf and then sent as an attachment to the desired email address?  

    Thank you so much for your help.  I have used you guys before and I know you guys are an authority in this space so I wanted to check with you to see if you knew of any way this was at all possible.  


    Thank you,

    Hi Roderick,

    Yes this is possible, although not an attachment but a downloadable PDF link.

    Here's a quick tutorial:

    1. First, you can set up your email notifications under "Emails".

    2. Under "Compose Email", you can add the PDF Link of the submission, this will create a downloadable PDF link where your recipient email/s will have accessed to.


    You may also want to check this guide where you can include headers and other text to your PDF submissions: How To Include Headers, Texts and Images in PDF Format Submissions. After applying these settings it will automatically implement it to your PDF Link submission included in the notifications setting.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need more assistance on this.

    Thank you.
