    Include a thumbnail of an uploaded image into the Get PDF feature in submission Reports

    Asked by guest_23455267493057 on December 11, 2012 at 04:45 PM

    When I view individual submissions, uploaded images appear on screen. However, when I use the Get PDF feature, the image is not included in the pdf. I would like to generate a pdf that is a "complete" record of my form. Thanks!

    Can you try this?

    Open the submissions for the form, and click on the grey cog on the right, select the 'Include headers & Texts' option.

    Dear JotForm,

    I tried selecting the "Show Headers and Texts" option but that did not include the uploaded photo submission in the PDF. Any other ideas? 

    Also, is there a way to name the PDF, rather than the generic 14 digit number? For example, name it accoring to the name of the individual who submitted the form.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Patty, 

    Unfortunately, these options are not currently available.  

    Images are not included in PDFs at the moment and the naming option is also not availlable.

    We thank you for the suggestion.  We will forward this as a feature request to our dev team.

    I was wondering if including the uploaded images in a PDF of the form was ever added or made available as an option for a form as the last post was almost 2 years ago?  This would be extremely helpful for my business.

    Hello lnak5,

    I believe showing the uploaded image in PDF was always possible.  You can go ahead and create a sample form and test it yourself. The submission PDF should display the uploaded images. 

    I have moved this question to a new thread so that you can discuss the issue more in detail :  http://www.jotform.com/answers/433569 

    Thank you!
