Jim H asked 2 years ago

I am trying out Formidable Forms to replace a calculator on my website from Calculoid. The calculator is to help a user estimate the cost of beginning a hobby. The form works fine. However, I don't care for the form to be submitted to me. I want the users to be able to email the completed form to themselves or save it as a pdf. I cannot find a simple way to do this. Any suggestions/solutions appreciated.

Formidable has a new PDF add-on that allows you to send form entry data as an email attachment. Sending an email with an attachment only works if the form entry is submitted to the database. In other words, you have to save the form entries for this functionality to work. If you don't want to receive a notification, don't send the email to the yourself, the admin.

Thanks for the reply. The PDF add-on looks like it will work however not available to me as it requires Business Plan (I've just started trying things out and am on Basic).

While I decide if I am ready to move up to that level, I've figured out that I can have the user fill in an email address and receive a CSV file which will serve my purposes for now.

Thanks again for the solution.
