    Attachments: Is there a way to have them forwarded in an email?

    Asked by tdehn on July 07, 2015 at 04:15 PM

    Hello Jotforms Team,

    I have a form which allows users to upload documents and then they are retrieved by clicking the link and downloading them from your servers.


    Is there a way to have the form actually emailed to the recipient as an attachment instead of a hyperlink?


    Thank you,

    We support up to 1GB uploads, so this is not likely that we can email large files. Also, the server resources and email traffic are not free for us.

    At this time you can only attach a PDF copy of submission.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Hello Tom, 

    We noticed you were previously asking about an attachment option for uploaded files in emails and we wanted to update you and let you know that this is now possible. :0)
