    How to attach a file to Autoresponder?

    Asked by nwonline on December 22, 2015 at 03:18 PM
    I would also like to request the feature of being able to Attach a file (this includes PDF) in the autoresponder. I know that I can add a downloadable link to the autoresponder, an attachment would be much better!

    If you are referring to an external file or the file uploaded to the form, unfortunately it is not possible to attach these files to email notifications/auto-responders. If you are referring to the submission PDF, you may attach the file in the notification only. 

    If you want to send the PDF file to the form filling person, you may use the notification by adding the field ID of the email address field in the form to Recipient email.

    Hope this information helps!

    We would like to inform you that it is now possible to attach uploaded files to your email notifications even though your original request was for attachments in the autoresponder which is something else that we are considering.
