Activate the plugin in the plugin manager
Note: Please make sure you have installed your Visforms Subscription.
You must then activate the plugin in the plugin manager before you can use it.
To do this, go to the “System” menu item in the administration of your Joomla installation and then to the “Plugins” entry on the “Manage” tile. Locate the plugin’s entry named “Visforms - E-Mail attachments”. To do this, use the search filter above the plugin list.
The plugin is activated when you see a green tick in the status column. It’s disabled when there’s a gray circle with a white X in its place. In this case, click once on the gray circle to activate the plugin.
All settings are made in the form
The plugin was developed in such a way that it gives you the possibility to configure all options for each form individually. To do this, the plugin creates the new tab “Email attachments” in the form configuration, as well as the new tab “Edit email attachments”. In the administration of your website go to Components » Visforms and open the edit view for the form for which you want to create email attachments. Click on the “Email attachments” or “Edit email attachments” tab. The same options are available for both tabs.
