    Asked by trevobrasil on June 16, 2016 at 03:21 PM

    Hi there. I have a form, and after all submissions i get a pdf file, in the format 4431231234545.pdf (for example).

    Is there any way to change this format? can i control this? For example, can i change the format to dd/mm/yyyy/time.pdf?

    Unfortunately, there is no option to customize the file name of the PDF submission prior to downloading it from the submissions view of via email notification.

    By default it's gets generated with the submission ID. Let us know if you have more questions.
