New Feature: Get Uploaded Files as Email Attachments

JotForm is the best tool available when you need to create File Upload Forms. We cover so many upload related features, such as high upload limits, and sending your uploads to other services like Dropbox, Google Drive and Box automatically. On top of all of that, we now give you the ability to receive uploads in the emails you receive as attachments.




Enabling this feature on your forms is pretty easy. Just open the email settings for your form and then enable it from the Advanced features tab.

    We would like to attach the uploaded form to the AutoResponder email. Submitter uploads a document then Submitter receives an email receipt with the uploaded document attached. I see this was requested in July 2016 - any update? If not, I would also request this feature.

    This was working on my forms but has suddenly stopped. The files appears to be attached to the email, but the files are empty and won't open.

  • daviddekel

    I see this works on the "notification" but not available on "auto responder", will this be added in the future?

    thanks

    Is this feature is broken on my forms. Can forward form as PDF with photos in it but there are no photos being attached to emails.

  • Leonardo

    I'm trying to place a pdf ebook to the attachment, when I when I submit the form with my own email to see if it works I see the attachment but it doesn't allow to open it on my Mac because I get an error message saying the file is empty.

    Any suggestions?

    I couldn't allow a form, this is "Teacher's evaluation". Can you tell me, why?

  • Teresa

    Even me could do it. Though, after the first form, I could not repeat it with the second one. :-(

    Does this feature allow me to add an "upload file" button on my website, whereas my clients could click and upload a large video file (say, two gigs) and then that file would be sent to my email?

    Great news!

    You guys might want to take a look at the "drag and drop" widget. This does not seem to attach the files.
