    I am looking to see if when a user submits the form with an uploaded attachment, if the email notification I receive can attach that document as a PDF to the email instead of a link.

    Unfortunately, this is not possible. All uploaded files in the form will be uploaded to our servers and in your email notifications they will appear as a download link, not an attachment. It is also not possible that the documents will be converted to a PDF file, like if user uploads a .doc file and it will convert to a PDF file, at least that's how I understand your other concern.

    But, if you are looking to make the submissions to be a PDF version and as a downloadable link to the email notifications, you can do that by following the screenshot below.

    1. Navigate to "Emails" and click the notification.

    2. Add the form field tag {pdf-link} anywhere in your email content.

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