    How to send a copy of the PDF to the user via email?

    Asked by Virtualroadworks on March 07, 2016 at 02:00 AM

    This probably will have a simple solution however I am using the conditional logic method to enable the user to dictate through a series of questions to a particular page. On this page will be a particular PDF.


    I would like to enable the user to input their own email address and a copy of the PDF would be Emailed to them and or a URL Link to download the PDF - with the intention of them logging on a computer and printing the PDF Off directly.


    At the moment any form sends a notification email to myself and the admin email what I have put in however I would like to enable the user to receive a copy of the PDF as well as the decisions they made in each part of the decision tree.

    You can setup an autoresponder in your form so that they can receive a copy of their submission. To do so, simply follow this guide: Creating a Form Autoresponder

    Then you can simply add a PDF Link so that the user can download a copy of their submission as PDF. Just click the PDF Link under the Form Fields as seen below and a {pdf-link} should appear in the body of your autoresponder email.

    Here's a demo so you can see the form in action: https://form.jotform.com/60661837153962

    Enter your email in the Email field and submit the form. You will receive an email with a Download PDF link that you can click to download the PDF.
