    Terms & Agreement text visable in Submissions PDF

    Asked by MSPG on August 26, 2013 at 03:50 PM

    How can I have the Terms & Agreement that an individual agrees to and added to the SUBMISSIONS PDF print out page?

    We are needing to provided when applicable the terms & agreements that were approved online through JOTFORM.



    Thanks for your help!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can use a Free Text (HTML) field for your Terms & Agreement text.

    Then, you will need to check a 'Show Headers and Texts' option on the form Submissions page Preferences.

    This will add the text information to your PDFs.

    If you need any further assistance on this, please let us know.

    Gotcha, did that and now all the headers pop up and you can't read the information in Terms & Agreement in full.  Workaround?

    Is that okay if we re-style the 'Terms of Use' section on your form?

    It can be like this:


    So it will be printable in full size.

    Need to run that by a few other people.  Is there any other way to be able to print a copy that I can forward to our clients that part of the same doc?  

    We like current look which doesn't open up the entire Terms and allows the user to scroll before release.

    Good day! You mean the PDF Format as a copy of the submitter, right? This is the best method, adding an auto responder to your form. In the auto responder settings, add the PDF Download Link:

    Be sure to follow instructions provided by my colleague Mike for showing the headers and texts to the Submission Output.


    You can actually create the same styling of your form even using the method provided by my colleague.

    Here's an example output form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/32386960841966.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    If you'd like this method, you can simply clone my form back by following this guide: How to Clone a Form.

    OR, if you'd like to apply the same formatting to your form without cloning the form back, let me know so I can add it to your form.
