    Generating a custom pdf from form submission

    Asked by msl2017 on November 30, 2016 at 03:19 PM

    I'm trying to see if there is a way to create a custom visa invitation letter based on the user's form data. I am able to create the Autoresponder and Thank You page in such a way that it properly displays the content and formatting for how the final letter should look, but what I would like is to be able to generate the same visual layout and content in a pdf (printable from form or attached in the autoresponder email) for the user. Unfortunately there is not enough control over the custom pdf in the submission menu to be able to do this.

    While the submission Thank You page, and the autoresponder e-mail both get close to the final product I need, both still have the problem of web or email print headers and footers and extra information that can't be in the final visa letter. I'm attaching a screenshot of what the html response page looks like, whic is close to what I need as a pdf.

    Is there a way with Jotform to customize this into a simalar final pdf output, or do I need to go elsewhere, like the Gravite Forms and their GravityPdf plugin? I'd like to stay with Jotform for this if possible.
