    Can I make the PDF and associated Jot Form submission have the same subject heading

    Asked by Victorine on February 16, 2016 at 08:43 AM


    I have noticed that when the email comes through with the PDF attachment, the attachment consists of the numbers.  Is there a way to ensure the PDF picks up the same subject name as the Jot Form submission?

    When the email and attachment come through, we need to save the PDF into a file on the PC.

    Many thanks.

    Unfortunately, we do not have an option or feature that allows you to automatically change the PDF submissions name when you download them.

    However, this is possible if you integrate your form to Google Drive and Dropbox.

    Here's a guide for Google Drive: http://www.jotform.com/help/192-How-to-Integrate-a-Form-with-Google-Drive. You can combine different fields to come up a unique submission folder and PDF name.

    Here's a guide on how to integrate Dropbox: http://www.jotform.com/help/77-Upload-to-Dropbox-with-JotForm. However, Dropbox integration does not allow you to choose multiple form fields to name your submission folder and the PDF submission, you can only select one form field, but you can use the Unique ID widget to name them. Here's a guide about it: http://www.jotform.com/help/255-How-to-setup-folders-using-UniqueID-in-Dropbox. Or you can use conditional logic to combine all fields and have them in one form field and use that as a reference.

    Here's a screenshot of my Dropbox folder, it's a combination of the response date and the full name field.

    I hope that helps.
