    Generate printable files

    Asked by PriceIT on August 23, 2014 at 04:35 PM

    Does Jotform offer some sort of app or form where a user fills out a form and a file such as a .pdf or .txt is generated, without using api, and downloadable for printing?

    I have an idea but it may require scripting. Is there a way I can have a blank white page on my web server with custom Javascript or JQuery where Jotform elements such as {id} or {fullName} are generated when a link in an email is clicked? I would like to do this without any backend scripting such as php.
