    Thank you for contacting us.

    Let me please inform you, that we email the form entries in HTML format, but you can also switch the form Email Notification to use a Plain Text format. Take a look at the following guide to find out how to set the Email Notification on form.

    Setting Up Email Notifications

    The form entries can be also managed from the form Submissions page.

    How to view Submissions

    For example, you can download them in Excel/CSV format. Also, we provide iOS App, Android App and other features.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    Thank you for you response. I am using the google drive connection that
    you offer. The service works fine
    but only saves the form in pdf format. I need a text or html file.
