    Can you attach the form data as a PDF to the email notification

    Asked by thdhsmp on November 14, 2016 at 12:20 PM

    Hello, I have viewed the forum for an answer to this question and found something from one year ago but couldn't reproduce the solution.  I am trying to set up an email notification that also attaches a PDF of the form that was filled out and includes the HTML as well?  For example I have a form that includes legal language where a user needs to input data, etc.  Can the attachment include the legal language as well as their input?

    Yes, this can be easily achieved with our system.

    Please first follow this guide to add the legal text to your submission PDFs:

    Now that the PDF of a submission will include the HTML text from your form as well, we can proceed on attaching a PDF onto your email notifications. If you do not have an existing notification, here is how to set it up:

    Once you have your email notification set up, simply switch to its Advanced tab, and make sure that PDF Attachment is enabled:
