Hello,

 

I have a fillable PDF form that I have created. I have everything ready to go with the exception of submitting a form. I want the submit form button that I have created to email a copy of the PDF to the recipient. I have tried the native submit form action, and I have tried javascript to try and get the button to email a copy of the form. I can only get it to create a draft in the "Drafts" folder, and not send. I have searched the forums and the internet to try and find a solution. So far the only success I have is that it creates a draft. Can somebody help me and/or point me in the right direction?


Thank you,

 

Jeff

You have to send the draft. This is a vital and unavoidable part of protecting your system. If you want a submit with no questions, and which works for people without email clients (as many as half the audience, easily) you need to submit to a web server, to a script written by a professional web programmer.

Ok. Understandable. What about sending the PDF to SharePoint. I have tried that using the URL. I am getting an error "Error opening URL to submit this form". I copied the URL(Web Address) as it appears in the settings in SharePoint.

Doing so requires installing a script on the local machine of each user who is going to use the file, and even then they will be prompted to approve it, as it's a huge security risk if an application could just send emails on your behalf silently and without any approval whatsoever from the user...
