Print Free Text field in PDFAsked by fairfinance on April 13, 2012 at 06:50 AM
I've created a form which will be hosted on our website in order to make it possible for client to sign a contract online, by filling all the required fields. In the end however, we require the clients to print the form, sign it and send it back. I was able to create a link to the PDF on the thank-you page and in the confirmation email, however all free-text fields are missing.
As they contain T&C it is mandatory that they are printed in PDF, as well, otherwise it won't have much of a legal value... is that possible at all, without the need to manually print each contract using a third-party tool and then sent it back to the client manually?
Moreover, would it be possible in the future to choose which fields should be printed in the PDF? For example, the upload file field is not really needed in the print-out, only in the online form.
And also, is I create a condition that skips to page 2 if a user selects a certain option, is it possible to avoid printing page 1 as well in both PDF and Email autoresponder? Otherwise there will be a lot of empty fields that will create lot of confusion to the user.
So this is a concrete example: http://form.jotformeu.com/form/21034255922345
When clicking on Name, then filling out the name field on the next page and submitting I get the following email:
The following submission:
and the following PDF:
I can't seem to get anything to display as I want to, althought following these instructions at least the PDF should be ok, but only the first heading is showing...
This is currently not available but one of our developers will work on this and make the PDF file also show the free text fields on the form.
Is there at least a way I can show all headings in the PDF? It seems some are showing and some are not. Same applies for HTML Free Text fields. Some are showing in the PDF, some are not. This is quite confusing...
I have assigned this to one of our developers. So, the will make all fields to show up.
when might this be available?
