    Using free text HTML and digital signature to create contract form

    Asked by maschik on October 29, 2013 at 03:43 AM

    Hi, 

    I've created web from to use as online contract signature tool. 

    i've located the contract text with HTML free text field and signatre pad below. 

    How can i extract a full form copy (web, PDF, email notification etc.) which combines the free text with the signature ? 

    I get only the signature and other form fileds without the free text.

     

    Many thanks in advance. 

     

    Ron.

    Hello Ron,

    Unfortunately, the values of the free text (HTML) question will not be added in your submission emails. If you really need to see these texts in your submission email, it needs to be added manually in the compose email section.

    Here is how you should do it:

    1. Load your form in editor.

    2. Click on "Setup & Embed" and then click on "Email alerts"

    3. Click on one of the Notifocation to open the compose email window:

    4. In the compose email window, add one row wherever you need with the help of the toolbar. Once the row is added, you should copy and paste your entire text of free text (HTML) field in the added column.

    When you receive submission emails, the texts will be now be displayed. I have cloned your form and added sample "terms and condition" text: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/33011973830954?

    If you like you can clone this form and have a look how the texts are displayed in submission emails. Here is a guide to help you clone this form: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-clone-an-existing-form-from-a-URL

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you!

    Hi, besides to what my colleagues have mentioned, a 3rd solution might be to just print the PDF file from the submission view page, but making sure the option SHOW HEADERS AND TEXT is enabled

    This way, the Terms and Conditions, that are stored into an Free Text HTML field will be included.

    2. Select the form and then click on the "Submissions" button:

    3. You will be redirected to the Submission list page.
