    It cannot send a PDF file as an email attachment but it can send an email and it can contain a link to the PDF file.

    Open your form on the Form Builder:

    1. Click on "Setup and Share" tab on the toolbar
    2. Click on "Email Alerts"
    3. Click on "Add New Email"
    4. Select "Autoresponder" option and complete the wizard.

    Can you be more specific? At which point in the Autoresponder will I see the option to add a link to a PDF download? Or is this an outdated feature? I would like to make this available to clients. Thank you -- I LOVE Jotform!

    Example:

    You may also want to enable Show Headers and Texts option in Submissions Properties to show mentioned data in PDF submissions.
