    When receiving submissions can you make columns

    Asked by xDiiThy on January 14, 2017 at 08:19 AM

    Also I HATE THAT when you submit to test a submission it uses one of your submissions per month VERY FRUSTRATING!


    Basically, when I receive a submission and want to print it I want to save paper by having two or three columns on one page rather than one column of data going down the page is this possible?

    Were you referring to the submission email message?

    You can customize the email template message body using the email message template editor.

    You can customize the email message information setup with multiple column or within a grid/table format.



    You can then have a customize printed output when printing the email message.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    I was referring to the actual submission you receive on JotForm and printing from there it prints only one column down not like a second column next to it to save paper. I am happy that the fields that are not entered do not come up but I also want the option to have columns on data rather than just one column. Thanks for the example though.

    Thanks for the clarification. 

    You are able to customize the PDF report that is submitted with the email notification, you only need to go to the submissions page, click on the PDF button and select the "Customize PDF" option: 

    Once there, you could position the data as you need, example: 

    Once you download the PDF report of a submissions it will look like this:
