    Hi,

    I have opened a new thread for you here and notified our developers of it for a feature of downloading the DOC file from the submissions next to the PDF,CSV and Excel files already available.

    If this gets implemented you will be notified about it through this thread.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Just adding my comments from original post:

     

    I most certainly appreciate your effort and new thread and hope your
    awesome devs can come up with a way to pull this off.
    Currently, I will be doing manual conversions which is not all that easy
    and totally defeats the purpose of automating what we are trying to
    automate via jotform.
    To be elaborate:
    The google doc integration with an actual google word processing doc as
    opposed to a google spreadsheet, or getting rid of the huge white space in
    existing pdf report will both satisfy our needs here; doc option albeit
    will be preferred as it will give us a live cloud based editable document
    that we can then easily turn into other formats such as pdf if needed.
    I was going to add:
    if the doc option is being considered for implementation, can there be an
    option for us to get both of the following samples as submission format
    options on the doc itself:
    1. Box format (like current pdf)
    Submitter name name
    Email email
    field 1 answer1
    field 2 answer2
    etc
    etc
    2. Line format:
    (we know our fields, we can care less about our fields labels being visible)
    submittername, email answer, answer1, answer 2, etc, etc
    As we have different forms that can benefit from both above output
    formatting options depending on form: on some we prefer to get comma
    separated line/paragraph per submission, as opposed to a box format with
    line items within each submission (current pdf output), and for others we
    need the box format as opposed to the comma separated paragraph/line option.
    Does this make sense? I hope it does, if not i can visualize it later when
    I get some time and post a video/screenshot to clarify
    Thank you

    Hello Omid,

    When you say box format, do you mean to say the border line you see in the submission pdf?  Please explain the line format requirement and we will update the feature request ticket.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!
