    Printer-Friendly Thankyou message. Possible?

    Asked by markashton on September 16, 2012 at 01:09 PM


    One can create a custom Thankyou page on jotform and pass the field values through ...

    With a little html ... one can put a border around and create a thankyou page that displays a certificate ... might be a bit rudimentary but does the job.

    My question is ....

    Are there any tips to make the bespoke Thanyou page printer friendly?

    My target audience are happy to see their certificate ... print it out and complain that it prints on two pages ... they are technophobes and may not even know how to get it to 'print to fit' ... i know don't ask !!!

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hi Mark,

    To my understanding, a printer-friendly web page, was aimed to be as simple than the actual web page for the purpose of reading/consuming the printed page.

    To make it simple, and 'printer-friendly', it is usually strip of some ads, animations,and some none needed elements for a simple printed page.

    Hope this help. Please do inform us if you have further inquiry.

    If you are talking about your own custom Thank You Page (stored into an external link,)    you could insert the window.print function into the header of it


    function printpage()


    Then on the body of your custom Thank You page, you could insert the Print button that would call the function. You can even put some CSS style to that button.



    <input type="button" value="Print this page" onclick="printpage()" />

    I suggest that you create a new thread with regards to your question. 

    Click on this link to do this. We will attend to your question as soon as we can.

    To answer you quickly, the "header" being referred to by Jeanette was in an external link -- it can be an html page that have header tags.
