PDF copies of form submissions

Providing PDF copies to respondents

When your respondents submit form entries, they might want to keep a record of the data they have filled out such as purchase orders, complaint s they have raised, or application s for their reference.


To provide your respondents with an option to have a copy of their responses,

  • You can provide a link to download the form responses as a PDF in the Thank You Page.
  • Send the PDF of the form submission as an attachment in the Email Notification triggered to the respondents after submitting an entry.
