    Request: The ability to generate custom PDFs by choosing which fields to include

    Asked by Wtfuck on March 08, 2013 at 05:46 AM

    Hi Jotform Team !

    I have some question about how works the PDF Link.

    Lets try to explain you how it's suposly to work.

    When you want to create a e-mail alerts you choose which field you want to send so if you want to hide some answer you can

    But when i add my pdf link it show all field without preocupe what i hide on my e-mail alerts

    So my question is it possible to create a PDF Link that automaticly sync with the e-mail alerts

    And if it's not possible to add a Feature Request because at this time i can't use this functionnality

    If you thinks that feature is not possible i have another solution but it's not very clean

    To add like the repport a PDF Generator and you chose which field you want to show

    If you don't understand all tell me

    :)

    Hi,

    It seems to have sync properly. Please make sure you have uncheck those fields on your form submissions page and use the PDF Link field on form's notification wizard.

    The PDF submissions URL should be something like this:

    http://submit.jotformpro.com/server.php?action=getSubmissionPDF&sid=228556323874713897&formID=30663137916961

    Try it again and let us know if this doesn't help. Thanks!

    @Wtfuck

    Thanks for clarifying it a bit. Unfortunately it is not possible. Also, I find it a bit complicated since a form can only generate single PDF, therefore only 1 settings should be followed. It would be very hard to set 3 different PDF settings for each notifications and it might confused the users. 

    My suggestion would be to use email clients like Thunderbird or Outlook then use the following plugin to convert this emails to PDF. http://www.novapdf.com/kb/convert-email-to-pdf-207.html

    Thanks! :)

    I'am not satisfacted about your response

    It's not hard to do 3 or more different PDF settings, is my solution

    To have somthing like the repport and choose the fields you want to have

    And then have the direct link to download the pdf to put on the email

    Thanks
