Can I Have The Form Send A File?

  1. Is there any way to include a file (like a .pdf file) when the form is filled out? I was hoping I could attach a file to the confirmation email? Any ideas on this one?

  2. Gravity Forms does not currently send email attachments. You can see previous discussions here:

    Good explanation:

    The recommendation has been to include a link to the PDF in the confirmation email.

  3. Actually, I think I should just use a file download plugin and redirect the user to a page with download instructions. Does anyone have any recommendations on a specific file download plugin that works well?

  4. I've used this in the past and it seemed pretty good.
