Start Downloading a File when a visitor submits the Form


With Brave you can start downloading a file on user’s end as soon as they submit the Form. This is a very useful feature when you are trying to subscribe visitors to your newsletter by giving away free ebooks.


To enable this option follow these steps:

  1. Click the Form element and then click the “Actions” tab from top right corner.
  2. Then open up the “Submission Success Action” tab.
  3. Select “Action Type” to “Show Custom Content”.
  4. Then enable the “Also Start Downloading a File” option below.

  1. Once enabled, you will need to insert the File Url.
  2. If you have added the File to your WordPress Media Library, you can simply go to your Media Library and click the File and copy the File Url from the “Copy Link” field and paste it here.


Once enabled, when the visitor submits the form, they will be shown a custom message that you have set and the specified file will automatically start downloading on user’s browser.
