    PDF attachment is not being received in submission emails.

    Asked by musical.miss on June 27, 2016 at 02:20 AM

    Hi, 

    I noticed in the advanced options for the email submissions was an option for users to receive a PDF version of the form data. I have turned this on but the PDF version is not attached to the forms I have received since then. Is there something else I need to do?

    Regards, 

    Sarah

    Hello Sarah,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    I did clone your form and I am not able to replicate the issue you are having. The submission emails I received does include the PDF attachment. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    I would suggest you to please test your form and get back to us if the issue persists. To replicate this issue in your form, can I add my own email address in your email alert recipient?

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Have tried again with some of my other forms, but no luck there either.
    Clearly I've done something wrong! The test emails I get of my forms don't
    look like the one you received.
    Sarah :(

    I have just cleared the Form CACHE. So now hopefully, it should work. Can you please try to check it again.

    Hi,
    My test forms still have no attachments but two of the proper form
    submissions I received last night did have attachments.
    I have several other forms that I will need to do the same thing. Am I able
    to clear the Form CACHE myself if they aren't working properly?
    Regards,
    Sarah
