    It seems to me that you are asking if it's possible to add a PDF instead of a URL to change the Thank You after a condition is met for form submission. Is that correct?

    Would this be a PDF of a Document you want to use? Or did you maybe mean a PDF Link of the Form and|or Submission for it?

    Can you please explain more on what sort of PDF you wanted to use to replace that with? We can certainly look into it more to find a way to help you better with it if it is possible.

    I would like my thank you page to redirect to the pdf of their form submission. Another forum post had that this was possible but sent me to a different link to see how to change the Conditional URL but no instructions on how to make it go to the pdf of the form submission. 


    I did add a link to download it in the Auto Notifier.

    This can be done by clicking on Thank You page button on the Setup & Embed section of the top toolbar on the Form Editor.

    Then we click on the Thank You Message option and click on next:


    On the Thank You Page Wizard, we need to build the hyperlink that will be used to download the PDF File, choose an are of the Thank You Page where you want the download link to go and  type in the following:

    <a target="_blank" href="">Download Submission as PDF</a>

    Then put your cursor betwwen the "" of the target="_blank" href="" attribute and click on the PDF Link option that appears on the Form Fields menu at the right of the wizard, once you do that the link will look like this:

    <a target="_blank" href="{pdf-link}">Download Submission as PDF</a>

    Once you are done click on Finish
