    Can a form submission be received in PDF Format?

    Asked by Lynn on January 25, 2012 at 07:47 PM

    Is it possible to receive a form submission as a PDF File attachment in my email? instead of the text in the body of an email.


    Thank you

    It is possible to automatically generate a PDF file for a form submission. However, you can only provide the link to it, not attach the file itself in the email.  This is because we do not allow files to be attached on form notification emails.

    Copy and paste this link to your form notification email to generate a pdf link for the submission:


    An alternative to this would be to integrate your form to Dropbox so you can receive the pdf file directly to your Dropbox account (and your computer, if you have Dropbox installed).
