    Can I change the name of the .pdf files that I receive via email after a form is submitted?

    Asked by tinman230 on September 28, 2015 at 09:38 PM

    I would like the files I receive by email to have specific file names according to data that is provided when the form is filled out. Is this possible?

    Hi tinman230

    Unfortunately, renaming the PDF in the notification email is not possible at this time. The string of number in the file name is the submission ID.

    You may consider integrating the form to Google Drive and use custom folder name:


    You will have to get the PDF from your Google Drive account.

    Or, Dropbox:

    Hello, I was just wondering if there is any update on this feature.  I use Google Forms for some things and this is available with them - but I would prefer to use only one form provider - as I have JotForm set up for a lot of things already.

    Thank you in advance for your help!
