I've gotten caught in the middle of two opposing requests.
I have a form on a landing page. By request, I built it so that the end-user fills out the form and a pdf resource downloads immediately. (we also have an auto-reply email send to that person) This is done by setting "after form fill" to "external URL"
Separately: The landing page template has built into it a way to have the user stay on the page, and I can display a basic HTML message, including a link to whatever file.
My dillema is that I've got two sensible requests that I can't seem to easily do at the same time.
1 - QA wants me to display the "thank you message" because without it, it's a little disorienting. I could do this with a link to the pdf, but original requester doesn't want user to have to click a second time.
2 - The original requester wants the file to download immediately when they press submit, but then you're disoriented because there's no 'thank you' message displayed
