    What types of files can be attached? I’m trying to attach a voice recording to an auto response email that is a m4a file type and it will allow it. Also what is the max size for a file?

  • nsmd

    Yes I know that. I did it and it failed to send the attachment in the auto response. What it did was send a PDF of what I filled in.

    I've added a PDF file to my autoresponder. It appears on the email but when I try to open it says....

    The file “Terms & Conditions.pdf” could not be opened because it is empty.

    I do not the option "Emails" as you mentioned in the 2nd step.

    After selecting the form and clicked on more.... then I see only the following options:
    View Form
    View Submissions
    Form Analytics
    Revision History
    Clone Form
    Create PDF Form
    Share as Template

    If I need to check anywhere else where I can find the Emails option please let me know.

    I have enabledthe attach file feature. I also closed the form and opened it again.

    When I send myself a test email the attachment isn't there. Does this mean that the attachment hasn't worked?

  • FauziNM

    Can I attach multiple files? Zipped file not supported. I'm prefer 2-3 pdf files to attached in to the autoresponder email. Regards.

    What's the easiest way to send a form via email to a client? Keep in mind I don't understand exactly what you mean by autoresponder.
