    I successfully change the pdf file trough shortcuts (Asked about this here:

    But the attached pdf in the notification email is not renamed. Is there a way to rename this pdf as well?

    Have a nice day!

    Filenames of the downloaded PDF may only be changed from the plugin’s “Export” tab. Change the text box marked “PDF file name in e-mails:”.

    This setting is static and does not recognize Formidable field shortcodes.

    Why can’t the Formidable field shortcodes be used for setting the email pdf name. Formidable uses this on their end with no issue (since you can use it in the shortcode). Why not just pull a call first to the shortcode and use that temp field to attach the pdf name? This seems like it has to be feasible. I just purchased this plugin and found out after the fact it wouldn’t work.

    A work-around is to provide a link to the PDF in the email using the shortcode, which will allow the use of Formidable’s shortcodes as the PDF filename.

    We will look at the functionality again to see if there is anything we can do and let you know via this support thread. You may also request a full refund if you are not able to use the plugin.

    FYI – We have added dynamic filename functionality to the Field Map Layout. You may now enter Formidable field shortcodes as well as static text into the “PDF file name in e-mails:” text box located just below the “Attach file to Email notifications” option on each field map layout.

    Update your plugin to acquire the functionality. We remain at your service.
