    How to add PDF/Docs uploaded as attachments on email alert?

    Asked by vanstreets on September 16, 2015 at 10:57 AM

    We have an upload your resume button on our form and want the email sent to us to include the document they attach.   How do we do that?

    Unfortunately, it is not supported to attach the documents or other files to notifications. Instead we are providing a link to download the file uploaded to your form submission. It is to prevent abusive users from hogging up server resources, since we allow attachments upto 1GB and allowing multiple users on each notification.

    I have checked your JotForm and see that the notification is already having the upload field. Also, I notice that you are receiving the link to download the file uploaded in the notifications.

    Hope this information helps.
