    PDF Form Submission

    Asked by lvdpullmax on November 30, 2016 at 04:18 AM

    In reply to a previous question i was recommended to use the form in pdf format, but when the form was tested and submitted it returned as blank.

    I emailed the form to a collegue who filled it out using his ipad then emailled it back to me, can you help at all?

    However, I looked up at your previous thread and found out that this was not my colleague Rose meant. She actually suggested you to enable the PDF submissions option in the email notifications. This way, you can receive a PDF attachment in your email notifications where the submission data is shown properly.

    Please see how you can enable it:


    About your empty fillable PDF form; your colleague probably forgot to save the changes after filling out. Please read this guide in order to see how to save fillable PDF forms:
