    Thank you for contacting us.

    Yes, it is possible by using Autoresponders.

    With Autoresponders you can set that with each submission a mail is sent to the submitter, only what is necessary is to have email field on the form.

    In Autoresponders you can attach PDF of the filled form:

    Hope it helps.

    If you have further questions please let us know.

    Thank you!

    hi salovfreight,

     

    I've looked upon the previous forum threads* concerning your wish about using submitted email data for re-sending auto-response mails.

    In Nik_C's screenshot, you can see how to attach the PDF data to auto-response mails but also you can see the "Send on Edit" option is turned off.

    So if you turn on this setting, you can actually trigger your auto-response mails with PDF attachments.

    But here comes the sad part; you can't automate this process. You have go through your form's submissions panel and one by one you have to select "edit submission" then without changing anything submit the form. This will trigger auto-response since you have turned on the "Send on Edit" option. If you are managing overwhelmingly big data, this can be time and energy consuming but if you want to get those PDF's to your audience, in my guess using JotForm is most appropriate way to do that. But if you are willing to give up on PDF attachments you can integrate your form to Google Spreadsheet and then you can try out this tutorial : Tutorial: Sending emails from a Spreadsheet

    Hope this helps.
