    I have a form that requires user input, then needs to be printed for signing

    Asked by zultys on December 16, 2014 at 02:11 PM

    Update 2: I went ahead and tried this and yes!!!! This does also affect the {pdf-link} output which is exactly what I need - awesome - please close this case! Loving JotForm!!!!!


    Update: I found the following article however it pertains to a form exported to PDF from form submissions. Does this also apply to fields that will display using {pdf-link}?


    Thank you again



    My form needs to allow for user input and then on submission, using email notification and {pdf-link}, they will print the form out for customer singing. Unfortunately, the PDF that renders from {pdf-link} omits all of my form text fields which I need to display on the pdf-link doc when printing.  All that is included on the PDF is the field labels, user input, image of signature.


    What do I need to retain text fields so I can have a signable document render from {pdf-link}?


    IS there another / better way to accomplish the same thing. 


    Seems like this would be a common application.


    Thank you in advance.

    Yes the {pdf-link} would show the printable version for your received submission data rather quickly via a notification. The {} tag is connected to the answer data for your questions of your form fields. Also, You can obtain the same thing from viewing your submissions

    Anyhow, we're glad to hear that you were able to find a solution to meet your needs for it. Feel free to talk to us again via a new thread if you need help again.
