    e, which I created into a poster, also sent as a PDF. We would like to be able to put this up on FB and social media immediately. Is there a way to have the poster outputted like the email which is sent?

    You can send the form submission data as a PDF attachment by setting the PDF Attachment option in the Advanced Settings of the Email Notification and Autoresponder to YES.

    To send the form uploads as an attachment in the email set the Send Uploads as Attachment option to YES.

    If you want to post the submission data to Facebook immediately (automatically) after a submission is made, you can try using third-party services like Zapier for that.

    Post to your Facebook Page from a JotForm form

    Yes, but when you do that you don't get a nicely formatted output, just a list of the input fields.

    Our integration with Facebook Pages only cover the process of embedding a form on a tab within your Facebook Page. As my colleague has already mentioned, you can use 3rd party applications to post form submissions to your page immediately, but I can't see an option to adjust the layout of those posts at the moment. 

    If you need any other assistance, please let us know.

    Thank you.

    Hey there:

     

    I believe there is some confusion.

     

    When I fill out the form at  https://form.jotform.me/73613491785465, and it gets sent to email,

    it is formatted properly, and looks exactly as we want it.

     

    However, the PDF that is attached is just a copy of the fields. We want to be able to print the output from the

    PDF just as it is shown in the email that is sent.

     

    How could I do that?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to make the PDF submission look like the Email.

    You can customize the PDF submission using the PDF Designer but the customization options are limited.

    Maybe you can print the Email content instead of the PDF that is attached.

    Let me help a bit here, if I can.. I'm not jotform support, but I think with Zapier you can convert your email content as-is into PDF and store it into Google Drive:

    https://zapier.com/apps/email/integrations/google-cloud-print/11814/convert-an-email-into-a-pdf-stored-in-google-drive

    Then you can use Google Drive trigger to post to Facebook.

    just use multi step zapier process to achieve what you need
