    Hi,

    Yes. You can do both those things. Please see our online documentation for details on attaching your PDF to notifications.

    Also, see this FAQ article on creating a PDF link from the front end of your website.

    That online documentation link leads to 404 page.

    I’m looking to something similar where a user can fill the form out and view it as a PDF to print after they have submitted it.

    It should have auto-redirected, but here’s an updated link to the documentation: http://gravityformspdfextended.com/documentation/

    The FAQ link in my previous post (and the video tutorial it then links to) will show you how to set up this configuration.

    Hi there,

    Thats great thanks, however after watching the video and adding the entry ID tags to the right places, my form doesn’t show any data in it. All that is shown in the download pdf file on the front end is grey rectangle with the height of one line and a grey border that surrounds it.

    What could I have possibly done wrong?

    Actually, when I’m logged out of my site and click ‘Download’ the link takes me to my wp-admin page :S

    This method is for showing a download PDF link on the form confirmation page only. There is security in place to prevent unauthorized access to the document (see the bottom of the page, under security).

    Arhhh, I figured it out. Leave the fid=x what it is for each individual forms, so your contact form might be fid=4, so your link would be:

    “http://website.com.au/?gf_pdf=1&fid=4&lid={entry_id}&template=default-template.php”

    Oh ok, but what if your users aren’t logging in and instead just submitting a quote or contact form?

    Good to hear you got it working.

    If users are not logged in, the software will match against the user’s IP address.
