    Send pdf of completed form to user

    Asked by lshad24 on November 16, 2011 at 11:35 AM

    Is it possible to have the pdf of completed form sent to the person who filled out the form rather than dropbox?

    No, that feature is not available.

    Can't you customise an autresponder email to do pretty much do the same job?

    I thought I could.  I added a print function as described in another thread; however, it didn't work.  Will this function not work in Outlook? This is the function I used:

    <a target="_blank" href="javascript:window.print()">PLEASE Print This Page for your records!</a>

    I am not to sure about that, doesnt Outlook have its own Print button? Personally, I dont really see the point in reinventing the wheel by adding an extra print link into the body of the email.

    Another option you have is to send the users unique submission in a link in the autoresponder email.


    {id} is a variable and will automatically change to that users unique submission ID on his email. 

    This is what one could look like: http://www.jotform.com/rssform.php?sid=146157232995216919

    You obviously have more flexibility as regards design of your output if you just stuck to displaying your content in an autoresponder email.

    It's not that I mind the output being contained in the email; I would like the user to be able to print out the form content without any email headers as the user will print this out to bring to his appointment.  Possible? 


    If JotForm would finally support multi-page printing, this would be unnecessary.  I would love to have an option for the user to print and submit.  Lots of other users have asked for this functionality.  I know....it's added to the developers list.  :-)

    Nope, unfortunately there is no way to remove those headers, unless the end user intervenes himself to remove them, and even then there really isnt any common method amongst email clients. 

    Could you not do something with a custom thankyou message at all? & have your users print that?

    You can access the form field variable names in there as well.


    Then Thankyou icon, Thankyou message, Next :



    With my basic example form here: http://www.jotform.com/form/13200702355


    Thats a decent editor you have there for tailoring your appointment 'tickets', you could even add that javascript you have for printing the page to it.
