    Attach form data to a text file (.TXT)

    Asked by xerok on February 06, 2017 at 02:44 PM

    In the settings section I have the option of attaching the form data to a PDF (see attached image). Is there any way to attach the data to a text file (txt) instead of PDF?

     

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, there is no feature that will let you attach the form submission as a TXT file. The only option available as of right now is PDF.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Would be a good choice for the post-processing of information in the
    company's own system (it would also be useful in "csv" or "xls" format)
    I hope we can count on this option in the future.
    Regards.
    Kevin.

    Hello Kevin, aside from PDFs, you may also export your submission data for post processing into CSV or XLS format.

    Complete guide: How-to-Download-Form-Submissions-as-Excel-CSV-PDF

    You may also generate reports in CSV and XLS format:

    We just don't have one for plain text. As an alternative, you may just copy and paste the CSV format into a text processing app then save it in plain text (.txt).
