    I have a Formidable Form and on submission I want to create a PDF filled with data from that form. Merging works as expected, but I receive shortcodes for direct download or a download link. But I do not want to download the PDF; is should only be sent as attachment to an email notification specified in the action settings af the form. On the support site of Strategy11 I found a solution to add an attachment to such an email by adding a filter fot the frm_notification_attachment, but then I need the filename of the attachment. But I do not know that name. Could you please indicate what I am missing?

    The PRO2PDF plugin provides an attachment setting on each field map layout, label “Attach file to Email notifications”. Once selected, all Email Notifications for the form will appear and allow you to select which notifications to attach the PDF to.

    Ok, but in my case I have a form, say form A, from which I will generate 3 PDF files. The submit button of this form does not send email notifications, but redirects the user to another page on which there are 3 forms. Each of this 3 forms contains a submit button that sends an email when pressed and that email should have an attachment being one of the PDF generated from form A.
    On your site I found a post in which a $ 10 plugin is mentioned that adds the capability to save the generated PDF; that could be a solution for me, but I cannot find where to obtain that plugin (if it still exists).

    In this case we add hidden fields to the second form(s) and use Formidable’s “Get Values from Entries” shortcode to populate the hidden fields with the values from Form A, then map the PDF to second form’s hidden fields so the PDF attachment will send with the second form’s submit button.

    Thanks for your response. I realized a second problem: when I create a field map I receive a shortcode for download link or direct download. But in order to use that I have to fill the field specifying the message that will be show when the submitbutton is pressed. But I do not want such a message, rather a redirect eventually after executing a payment action triggered by the submit button. Is it possible not to have the on submit message and where should I place shortcode to generate the PDF and how looks that shortcode?

    Place the shortcode into a Formidable View, then use the view shortcode anywhere in WP.
