    PDF submissions question

    Asked by kchin on October 23, 2014 at 05:20 PM

    3. I want to receive the submission in a PDF format to save electronically into patient's charts. 

    -How can I receive submissions as a PDF?

    -Will it go to the designated email address(es) or do I need to login to JotForm to download it?

    -How can I receive the PDFs in the format that the form was created (receive the form with all the entered information exactly as it appears on the page)?

    -Will it be one big PDF even though I inserted those breaks?

    -Can it just be each individual page separated out as separate PDFs?

    Hi,

    There are 2 ways you can received the submission data in PDF format.

    1. On the email Notifier. You can use the PDF link in the email to add the link to download the submission in PDF format

     

    2. GET the PDF submission data in the Submissions View page.

     

    -How can I receive the PDFs in the format that the form was created (receive the form with all the entered information exactly as it appears on the page)?

    The submissions PDF file is in a fixed format that you will not be able to modify. You cannot customize or modify it because there is no PDF editor available to do this.

    A workaround you can use is to add a Print button in your jotform and then use the EDIT submission option in the View Submissions page and print the form submission as PDF.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.

    Ok - if I use the "default generated pdf"... what would be the best way to get questions NOT to be broken up between pages? Is that just a setting we'd have to adjust in our print settings? 

     

    also, i don't 100% understand this:

    MAY I HAVE A STEP-BY-STEP EXPLANATION ON THIS?

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delays.

    You will have to do the adjustment both in the form structure and on the Printer settings. The default PDF format have specific size per page. This is something you will need to check manually to better see the actual PDF output.

    Please try this steps

    1. There must be a Print button in your jotform http://form.jotform.us/form/42474830931153

    2. Go to the form Submissions View page

    3. On a submission, click on the EDIT button on the upper right portion

    4. When in submission Edit mode, the form will have all data filled in already.. you can then PRINT the form using the Print button in the form. If you use Chrome browser it has feature to Save As PDF when printing

     

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.
