I have created a PDF that I want to distribute to people to complete.  Once they complete the form and hit submit I want the completed PDF to be sent back to me as an attachment in an email.  Is this possible?

You can simply add a button with a "Submit form" command.

Hi,

I am assuming you want to do this via JavaScript as that is the forum you have posted in and therefore, I would start by investigating the mailDoc or mailForm functions from the  JavaScript API Reference.

mailDoc documentation - https://help.adobe.com/en_US/acrobat/acrobat_dc_sdk/2015/HTMLHelp/#t=Acro12_MasterBook%2FJS_API_Acro...

mailForm documentation - Acrobat DC SDK Documentation

Hope this helps.
