The Jotform PDF Editor is used to create customized PDF documents. With the functions of new Action Buttons – you can send the PDF document as an attachment to an email address whether manually or fetched from a field in the submission.

In order to set up your Action Button – open your Jotform Table from what you want to send files, scroll right to the right border of your table and click on the +Add button:

The +Add button will open the window where you need to select the BUTTONS tab and choose Send PDF, then click the Next button.

After that, enter a column name and proceed next.

On the final page, you are able to:

  2. Open the PDF Editor for PDF customizing.
