    I was wondering if there was a way to get what I type in a text box to show up in the completed form a client sends back to me.

    Asked by Kfotta on January 21, 2017 at 01:21 PM

    I am using JotForm to create a contract that I send to clients, allowing them to electronically sign it. But when I view the returned/archived contracts, only the dropdown fields and buttons are viewable.   Is there a way to have the text (which is all the terms of my contract) show up in the archived contract? Thanks!

    You can enable the "Show Texts and Headers" option in the Submissions page. In this way, the normal text fields will appear in the downloaded PDF submission. Here's a guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/305-How-to-Show-Headers-and-Text-in-the-PDF.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
