Special Note

If your form has a document upload field DO NOT check the “Attach uploaded file to notification” box next to Attachments for your notifications. Using {all_fields} or choosing the document from the dynamic fields in the dropdown will provide a link to the document. The “Attach uploaded file to notification” option causes a conflict with Wake Forest’s email handling system and will generate an error when the user tries to complete your form.

Don't check this box.
