    I want to Send an Autoresponder Email as PDF

    Asked by Cityboxde on September 30, 2015 at 06:49 AM

    In my form http://form.jotformpro.com/form/52471763615963 I want to e-mail an autogenerated invoice to my customers as part of my auto-reply. In doing so I would need to include selected submission data and and the possibility to send a PDF or a link to a PDF to an e-mail which I could layout like an invoice.

    Or is there any other opportunity to autogenerate a sepearate document that includes submission data and can be send as attachment to my customers?

    It is possible to add submission PDF as a link; but unfortunately, it's not possible to customize the appearance of the submissions PDF.


    To add submission PDF link to your auto responder,

    1) Open the current "Auto Responder".


    2) On the following popup screen, select a place from your template, then click to "PDF Link" in the "Form Fields". You will see its name as "{pdf-link}" on your form. That's all.


    Final look from the received email looks like that,


    If you need any extra information or stuck somewhere while you are on the process, please let us know.

    Thanks for that. Additionally, is it possible to send two separate e-mail notifications to the customers when he sumits the form or can only be one autoresponder sent?

    Hi again,

    Yes, you can set more than one autoresponder. I assume that you want to use one for feedback and the other one for invoice. That is a good idea, if you want to use different design for invoice PDF.


    By the way, you are welcome. For further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.

    Have a great day.
