    Unfortunately, that would require additional works to be done and would take some time since you'll need to code the exact output. Jotform submissions result will only show you the selected answer(s) and all headers and texts are not included in the Form Notification Email

    Here are the steps on how you can manually add the headers and text into the email notification email:

    1. Open your form notification

    2. In the Email Notification editor, click on the cell

    3. Find and Click "Insert Row Before/After" button(s):

    4. Add your texts/headers to the added row(s).

     

    OR, you can just add the PDF Download Link so you'll get the PDF File of every submissions:

    BUT you'll have to access  your form submissions and CHECK "Show Headers and Texts" from the Settings:

    Click the form > Click "Submissions":

    In your Form Submissions Page:

    Click "Settings" > Check "Show Headers and Texts":

     

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Below I'm going to describe how to receive a link on the Email Alert (Notification) so that you can download the submission in PDF form:

    First open the Email Alert you want to edit through the top toolbar of the Form Editor via Setup & Embed then Email Alerts:

    https://cms.jotform.com/uploads/image_upload/image_upload/global/17815_EEN01.png

     

    Then click on the Notification (Email Alert) you want to edit:

    https://cms.jotform.com/uploads/image_upload/image_upload/global/17816_EEN02.png

     

    Once you have your email alert open, we are going to add the code that will generate the PDF Link everytime you receive the Email alert on your inbox.

    Before putting the code on the email alert. We are going to create the area where the PDF Link will be located on the Email Alert:

    First we will add a new row to the Email Alert, place the cursor on the currently last row and click on Insert row after.

    https://cms.jotform.com/uploads/image_upload/image_upload/global/19019_APL1.png

    Then we add the description on the left column and the PDF Link code on the right column.

    https://cms.jotform.com/uploads/image_upload/image_upload/global/19021_APL2.png

     

    Finally, click on Finish.

    So now when a user submits your form, you will receive the standard Email Notification, but now it will include a PDF link for you to download the submissions as a PDF file.

     

    This is a Screencast that shows the steps on video.

     

    If you need further assistance, do let us know. Thank you.
