    Hi,

    Just to confirm, you would like to add a PDF version of the submission/form to be an attachment in the email notifications, is that right?

    I will create a feature request for this, it will depend on the development team if this will be considered and implemented, but rest assure that they are also aware of this request. We will update you here in the forum when we hear any news.

    Kind regards.

    We have opened a ticket to request this feature

    In the meantime you can include a link to the PDF on either the Thank You page or the Autoresponder.

    I would also like this feature. We use jotform to send supply orders to a volunteer manned warehouse which has an hp eprint device. This device will not print HTML mails but will print PDF attachments. The current workaround is not scaleable. Thanks

    Yes, I would like this functionality also.  I provide free eBooks to customers.  If they give me their email address so I can use in future email campaigns (as stated in my privacy page), I would like to send them the PDF file.  I really do NOT want the functionality in the Thank You page.  I want it in the notification / thank you email.

    @Jeanette > Thank you for the code snipnet idea.  Where do you set the value of the pdf-link field?  Is it a pre-populated hidden field in your form?
