I am wanting to change the default pdf filename.
Instead of manually changing it when i get a submission...every single time...
i simply want it to come pre-formatted, simply "business card - {name:value}" ({name:value} is a field in my form)

is there a way to do that? and of course ONLY change it for this particular form and not all the other forms created by other people in the company ;)

Thanks in advance!

Here is a topic where it is explained how to automatically change the name of the PDF attachment.

In this topic , it is explained how to use a value entered in a field in a form as part of the PDF file name. This is for CSV, but you can apply this to the solution form the first topic I've linked for the PDF name with some coding knowledge.

Let me know whether you have managed to do so.
