    How can I make the Text Fields appear on the submitted document?

    Asked by atlspeech on May 14, 2017 at 09:52 PM

    When I create the form and select "text" and enter information there, that information does not appear on the submitted form. How can I create a form that allows me to enter extended information and that information also appears on the submitted form.

    Did you mean you have added a Text Area (Long Text Entry) on your form but once the form is submitted, the input on the Text Area is not displaying on the Submissions?

    I cloned your form (http://www.jotform.us/form/52884920908163) and checked the Text Area field. Upon submitting the form, the input was displayed on the Submissions.




    However, if you mean something else, please do get back to us.

    No. I am speaking for the highlighted portion in the captured photo. When I place this on the form, how can I get the information that I type into that box to appear on the actual submitted form.

    Thanks for the screenshot - To include Text Fields on the PDF Submission, just enable it on your Submissions Page.

    On the other hand, if you want these Text Fields to show up on your Email Notification template, then you'd have to manually add them on your template. The easiest way is to just copy and paste them.

    In case we misunderstood your question, just get back to us with a bit more info, like sharing the Form URL/ID, so we can have a better look at the actual form.
