    Hi,

    You can include the headers in your PDF submission by doing any of the following methods:

    Method #1: You can enable the show headers and text in the settings by following this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/305-How-to-Show-Headers-and-Text-in-the-PDF 

    Method #2: You can edit or create your own PDF layout for the submission, this is possible by using the Customize PDF feature, you can learn more about it here: https://www.jotform.com/help/384-How-to-Customize-PDF-Submissions-Report 

    Let us know if that works.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if I understood your concern correctly. Could you please provide us more information? On my end, it seems to be working. 

    Here's how I did mine:

    1. Here's my form, you can see that it has headers and static "Text" field. 

     

    2. I made sure that I have integrated Google Drive on the said form. 

     

    3. After that, I enable the "Show headers and text" in the submissions setting page. 

     

    4. This is the submission PDF I received, you can see that the headers and the static text successfully displayed. 

     

    Please note that the change will only apply to NEW PDF submissions added in your Google Drive, it won't affect those existing ones. Unless you download the PDF submission directly in JotForm's submissions page or using the PDF link. 

    If I misunderstood your concern, please do provide more details.
