    How to let users edit PDF submissions

    Asked by mtomlins on November 17, 2016 at 01:04 AM

    I would like to export the submission to pdf (via email) AND also allow them to edit the submission at a later date.  The earlier post said it wasn't possible, and was then updated to say it now is, but no instructions provided.

    Hi Mel,

    You can send your users a PDF attachment of their submissions via Autoresponder emails. However, those PDF files will not be editable. 

    Of course, there is a work around for this tough. Please see how:

    When you enable the "Send on Edit" and "PDF Attachment" options both on Autoresponder settings with the "Edit Link" (that I described in the first response) added, users can edit their submissions and receive a new email with a new PDF attached with the changes reflected. 

    Please try this and let us know if this is not able to match how you need it to be. 

    Kind Regards
