Hi, I hope you all are well and safe at this strange times.

I am working in a form with a lot of fields to fill. Once it is filled the user should click a button to send the entire pdf form attached in an new outlook mail to an email address.

I´ve been searchig the way to do that but the action buttons do not support a "send email" action, but they do accept javascript.

Could you help me with a javascript code to do that?

 

Many thanks and Regards

 

Joan

Use the Submit Form command.

As the target URL enter:

mailto:joan@email.com

(use your own email address, of course)

Then set the option to submit the complete PDF file, and you're done.

Hi again, thanks for your answer, 

I did what you said, but I get a message from Adobe Acrobat with something like "Error when trying to create a email document. Adobe Acrobat can not complete the action. If you are not sure about how to continue, you can save the form and retur it manually using the internet email service".

 

Any idea of why this message appears? 

Running Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2020.006.20042 on Mac OSX Mojave.

 

Thanks again
