Attached PDF to Notification eMail missing form field

    Asked on February 27, 2021 at 10:14 AM

    I have been preparing my form named Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9. In it is field (lastName107) which appears in Section 2 of the form. It is a required field, and I should point out is a field that I added after the formal conversion of the original PDF form which was imported due to an incorrect aggregation of the field names.

    When I receive the notification eMail after submitting the form within the body of the eMail it shows the input data and (lastName107) is included there correctly.

    However, in the attached PDF file only the field called firstName is shown in the PDF file.

    1614438653_603a60fd22b66_JotForm1.JPGBut if you examine the actual PDF you can see that the Last Name of Employer or Authorized Representative is missing. I examined the PDF to see if it was listed earlier or later in the document, but I did not see it. I did make sure to link this new field to the form I was creating to maintain the flow of input data. Would you help me with this please?

    In the PDF Editor, you can edit the PDF document and add the missing fields. Go to the Form Fields tab.


    Drag and drop the missing field to its location in the PDF document.

    You can also refresh the fields by re-creating the PDF document.
