    Submit as attachment - JotForm newbie needing some help.

    Asked by GlenbowMuseum on March 29, 2012 at 02:51 PM

    I am playing with making a form that our HR dept. can use to submit resource requests.  It is 90% great at this point and I still have some exploring and tweaking to do, but one thing I am unsure of and would like to be able to do is have the submission sent as an attachment, is that possible?

    Meaning that when the form is completed and the person hits submit, is it possible to receive that form as an attachment rather than in the body of the email?

    It is not possible to have the completed form attached to the body of the email notification. What you can do instead is generate a PDF file of the completed form and insert the link of that file to your form's email alerts.

    Please do take note that the file is hosted on our server, and cannot be sent as a file attachment as we do not allow that. It can only work as a link.

    To do so, edit your form notification and copy this link anywhere in the email content:


    To edit your form's email alert go to Setup & Embed > Email Alerts > Notification (or autoresponder)
