    You can put a download link in the Thank You page if you like. Here's a guide:

    1. In the Form Builder, click the "Thank You" button.

    2. In the Thank You Message editor, highlight the text and then click the "Insert/edit Link" icon. Enter the URL in the field and then click the "OK" button.


    You may also attach a PDF file in the autoresponder so that once the user completed the form, the user will receive an email with a file attachment.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
