    Asked by christoffel on January 09, 2017 at 05:03 AM
    My dashboard looks different, I can't see where I have to go to generate a report that I can put online or embed in my site.  Is there an update on this somewhere?  Rgds - Chris

    When I checked your earlier post, there have been several topics that you asked. I'm not sure that you are referring edit submission feature or creating a report. Anyway, I will answer both of them here.

    Regarding  Edit submission feature : 

    If the thing you are looking for something like fulfilling a form and submitting to your customer to sign it. It can be done via edit submission feature. To do that, please follow below steps. 

    1. Create your form as you wish. 

    2. Click to e-mail icon to create an autoresponder. Please note that autoresponder is the e-mail alert that send form submission to your customer to sign. 

    3. Click to ' Create New E-mail ' and select Autoresponder.

     

     

    4. Then, you can create what you would like to show your customer on the e-mail tab of autoresponder.  The detailed user guide about setting an autoresponder is below. 

    https://www.jotform.com/help/26-Setting-Up-an-Autoresponder-Email

    The things I would like to point out for your scenario.

    * You need to add an e-mail field to your form and should write your customer e-mail when you fill in the form. Since, the autoresponder will be sent to the e-mail address entered to the e-mail field.

    * You need to add an signature field to your form but make it empty when you fill in the form. This field should be signed by your customer as you said. 

    * You need to add an edit link to your autoresponder. Your customer click to edit link and see the submission for his/her and can sign it. 

    To add an edit link to your form, you need to follow below steps on your autoresponder settings. 

    This is the user guide for this edit submission feature.

    If you also would like to be sure that your customer sign it, you can also create a notification alert and make send on edit option enable. So, you can receive an e-mail when your customer sign it or not. 

    This is guide how to setting a notification.

    This is the part you need to enable on your notification setting.

     

     

    Regarding your other question about creating report:

    1. You need to click one of your form which you would like to create report for that form submissions. Then, click to Reports tool and click to Add New Report option as you can see here. 

     

    2. Choose the report type that you would like to create from the opening window. 

     

    I also attached here a useful guide where you can reach detailed explanations for each of them.
