    Hi,

    Unfortunately we do not have any specific time frame set for that. The currently closest option would be to follow the advise given by my colleague Mike.

    Since there are different things mentioned on the other thread your question was moved from, could you please tell us more about the PDF template feature that you would like to have as available?

    Having enough details will allow us to see if there is an alternative that we could suggest or have more details for our developers when raising this as a feature request to them.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Ben I have asked about this feature in the past. I do not understand what the purpose is of having the email notification able to be edited but not being able to customise the content. The ability is already built in to jotform in the reports section and in the email notification only neither of these allows for a customised document to be populated without including unwanted entries. 
    The ability to have answers populate a custom PDF or Word doc would open up Jotform to much of the medical and legal communities as well as other uses, without having to use two other paid services.
    I have used webmerge with other form builders ( obviously Jotform is the best one!) and typically the merge is automatic meaning the finished document is emailed to me after it goes from the builder to webmerge.

    Hi mybackcracker,

    There are certain elements that you can edit for your submission data, from the setting option on your submission page.

    The settings that are applied in your settings page will affected the information that in generated in the PDF file of your submission. After changes are made, you would need to regenerate your PDF file to see the changes.

    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Are these options also available for the PDF which can be attached to the email received by the sender (us) or the recipient (the client)? Further, can the settings (column width, etc.) for the notification email and the PDF which is generated via the email notification be edited?  

    For example, you sometimes have a longer "question", and in the default set-up, that question runs down 50 rows because the column is so narrow for questions. Thanks.
