    Hi there,

    Happy to help!

    To clarify: are you wanting to have your form respondents fill out certain number fields in succession on your form and then have these fields appear in that same order on the resulting PDF or are you wanting to have them fill out a PDF and then submit it to you via the form?

    I want to ensure that I fully understand your question before providing a solution so that it is as pertinent to your use case as possible.

    We look forward to your response.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for confirming your use case with us!

    In this case, you may add the fields onto your form in the order you'd like them to appear on the PDF. For the purposes of this example, I've created a very simple demo form.

    1) First, I added three Number fields to the form:

    1608775448_5fe3f718ada65_Add number fiel

    2) Next, I set up the the Notification emails that will be sent to me upon a form submission to attach a PDF of the number fields in the same order they appeared on the form:

    1608775647_5fe3f7df93e9d_set up notifica

    This way, when I send through a test submission and fill out the form, the resulting PDF attachment in the notification email will look something like:

    1608775973_5fe3f925d8ac9_

    Of course, this is a very simple example, and you can use our PDF Editor to change the resulting PDF as you wish.

    I hope this helps! Please let us know if we can assist further.
