    hello there. we just installed the free version of the add-on and were wondering of the paid version has some of the following features:

    – does an actual PDF file get created? when we view the PDF is loaded the ajax-admin.php file, with a bunch of parameters.
    – from what i’ve read, the “Attach file to email notification” is only available on the paid version, but does that send a file or the same ajax-admin.php url in the email for the client to download.
    – is there a way that we can send the PDF as the content of the notification email to the user, and not as an attachment?

    thanks,
    Brad.

    – does an actual PDF file get created?
    . Yes – and the free version also creates an actual PDF.

    “when we view the PDF is loaded the ajax-admin.php file, with a bunch of parameters.”
    . We do not understand this statement/question/concern… are you able to elaborate?

    – from what i’ve read, the “Attach file to email notification” is only available on the paid version, but does that send a file or the same ajax-admin.php url in the email for the client to download.
    . PDF attachments are a functionality of the paid version, however, the free version is capable of sending a link to the PDF in the body of the email using the shortcode.

    – is there a way that we can send the PDF as the content of the notification email to the user, and not as an attachment?
    . We do not understand this question, “send the PDF as the content of the notification email”, emails are not capable of embedding a PDF file, however, you are able to sent the Formidable Form data as the content of the email.. are you able to elaborate further on this question?

    thanks for getting back to me so quickly. i’ve responded in bold below.

    – does an actual PDF file get created?
    . Yes – and the free version also creates an actual PDF.
    – where can i find the PDF in the the file structure? i want to be able to FTP into the server and download them.

    “when we view the PDF is loaded the ajax-admin.php file, with a bunch of parameters.”

    – i created a test form found here (http://agrilight.staging.wpengine.com/brad-test/) and at the bottom is the short code to one of the PDF’s that has been obtained from the addon, and you can see that its linking to a wp-admin/wp-ajax.php url with paramters.

    – how can i create shortcode that works like this?

    . PDFs may emailed as attachments, and are created on-demand – when a user clicks the link the PDF is downloaded to the users browser, desktop, or mobile – merged PDFs are NOT stored on the server – only the original PDF form with empty form fields is stored on the server. We can provide an add-on plugin to store PDFs on the server, click here to request.

    . Shortcodes are created on the plugin’s EXPORT tab. Select the Form and Field Map Layout – then copy the shortcode below the dropdowns… You’ll need to change the dataset=”xxx” to dataset=[id] to generate a shortcode for the current entry if used in an email or in the form’s On Submit Message Box.

    Take a look at the demo video and let us know if you have any other questions.
