    Using any label printer set up on a device being used is it possible to have form information printed to a label as soon as the user submits the form? Jotform should allow label design options to make this work similar to the pdf design process.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately we do not currently have a feature to send the submission data to label printers automatically.

    The closest workaround would be to create a PDF in a shipping label format, and then print out these files, however this will not automate the printing process.

    Another option could be to integrate the submissions to Google Drive or Google Sheets, and create an automated script that prints out the labels. However setting this up might be a bit complicated, and will require some coding knowledge. Here is a related article I found:
    https://www.labnol.org/code/20061-google-cloud-print-with-apps-script

    I have forwarded this to our developers as a feature request. We do not have an estimated timeframe, or cannot guarantee that the feature will be implemented, but as soon as we have any updates, we will inform you on this ticket.
