    Tables on form not showing on submission email/PDF's

    Asked by CecilevdM on November 28, 2013 at 04:03 AM


    I have 3 tables added to my form. 2 are for office use only, so it doesn't really matter weather students can see it when filling in the form, but I want it in the submission PDF because we need to use that after printing the submissions. But this field doesn't even show up when I download the PDF's of submissions. Is it possible to fix this? The 3rd table is a field that students need to fill in, and I want 1 row to be required and the rest to be optional. Is this possible?


    Thanks a lot!

    We will try to add that option. But here is a temporary solution:

    1. On Submissions page for this form, click on the Settings icon and then enable "Show Headers and Texts". I did this for your form.

    2. Click on "Print" button instead of "Get PDF" and then use one of those software that can print to a PDF file instead of a printer. 

    It will looks something like this:

    Hope this helps.
