    Entries on table not showing in PDF submission & submissions date not correct

    Asked by CecilevdM on December 01, 2013 at 01:10 PM

    Hi,

     

    I have a table, "Qualifications", in my form, and on the submission PDF it shows the table, but nothing that was entered in the table. Is there any way to fix this?

    Also, at the submission date on the submission PDF, the date is correct, but the time of the day that it was submitted is not correct. How can I fix this?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    The "Text" field is not meant to be used as fill-able field in the form. It is always a read-only field type.

    This is the reason that in the form'subissions page, the Text field will not be able to carry submission values. 

    My suggestion will be to use the Matrix field instead. This way you can have a similar table -like data in the form's submisssion page.

    --

    Are you referring to the Date/Time of submisison in the submission grid?

     

    May I suggest you create a separate new thread for the subsmission date/time question.

    Please use this link https://www.jotform.com/contact/

     

    Thanks.

    Hi. I'm struggling to get the exact table as I created on the form using the matrix. Can you help explain how exactly to do this?

    Thanks for the help!

    Enter the text of labels for each columns,

    Institution (eg Unisa, UCT or Centre) Qualification (eg degree/diploma/certificate) Year(s) (eg 2004) Student number If completed, state your completed degree

    Simply click the icon and enter the values (press shift enter for a new line, a new line is a new column)

     

    For the Rows, do the same, enter numbers for each rows so you can get the matrix just like the one above

    Thanks. But is there any way to duplicate the table I created? For instance the column width must be different for each column and the lenght of the text fields must also be wider. Is it at all possible to add some code to my table so that info can just be submitted on there?

    Thanks for the help!
