Is there a way for the applicant who fills out a form to get a pdf copy of their application?

    I want to use Jotform for people to apply for grants for a new foundation I am creating. I know that I can get a pdf copy of each application, buy if someone wanted to get their own copy, can they do that? I know I could send what I have, but it would be cleaner if they could just access their own application. Large foundations have systems where people can do this, so some people expect that capability.

    If you would like to send a receipt email to the user filling out the form, you can do so by setting up a form autoresponder:

    Once the autoresponder is set up, enable the attach PDF option under the advanced tab:

    While viewing your submissions, there is an option to include headers and text in your submissions:
