    Is there a way to get the text in my form to show up in the pdf in my linked google drive?

    Asked by Jenaelise on June 06, 2017 at 02:28 PM

    I have linked Google Drive so that I receive a pdf in my google drive folder when I get responses to my form. Is there a way to edit this so that the text in my form shows up in this pdf? I know I can make pdfs in the submissions panel and elect to include headers but I like that with the google drive integration the pdfs automatically show up in my google drive folder whenever a form is submitted without my having to go in and create pdfs.

    Also, is it possible to add a workflow in which, if one option is selected in a multiple choice section, then the form is saved to be edited? I have a contract that I need to make a form for, and generate pdfs with, but if it is a certain type of contract (denoted by the MCQ) then I need to save the form to be signed upon completion of the work before it is submitted.

    The PDF report sent to the Google  Drive folder is the same like the one you download from the submissions page so you could enable the "Show headers and texts" option and you will get the PDF on your drive folder with the text showing up. 

    Here's also a guide about it: https://www.jotform.com/help/305-How-to-Show-Headers-and-Text-in-the-PDF 

    Regarding to your second question, it has been moved to a different thread, we will assist you as soon as possible here: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1165200
