Print and submit

    I've read the help articles and other user's questions about auto-printing a form on submission and understand it's not really supported.

    We've tried setting up a Papercut server to print the PDF that is emailed from Jotform, but unfortunately the delay of ~20 seconds is too slow for our use case.

    I also understand we can put a "Print" button on the review screen.

    I'm wondering what it would take to write a script or small app to print automatically when a form is submitted from an iPad in Kiosk Mode and get that as an official Jotform integration? Can you provide any tips or guidance?

    The forms is linked below, and I've attached the PDF ticket we need to print to a label printer: Dymo LabelWriter Wireless Label Printer.

    Thanks!

    Hello there,

    Unfortunately, we do not have the automatic printing after submission feature yet. If you want us to send a feature request regarding this, then kindly let us know.

    Moreover, your requirement might be possible (to some extent) if you were to take the your form's source code and implement this by yourself (or through a hired developer).

    You may also try to create your own widget in Jotform with this feature. See link below for more information.

    Should you have further inquiries, kindly let us know.

    Thank you.
