    PDF Submission: Ability to customize PDF output and/or show the same layout as in the form

    Asked by Mary Williams  on January 21, 2015 at 07:32 PM

    I need to be able to down load individual submissions as separate pdf files that look exactly like the document the client filled out.   Can jot form do that?  If so, How?

    We are looking for a replacement to Adobe Forms central but this is a critical feature that we need.

    Yes, you can download the PDF file for each submission

    You can even show the headers, images and text fields in the PDF format of a submission

    However, the PDF file will not look exactly the same as the form even though all the information will be there.

    However, this is a so much requested feature and now that Adobe Forms central is being shut down, our developers might increase the priority.

    In the meantime I invite you to play with our builder and check all the functionalities and the PDF output.

    As mentioned by my manager, you will be able to export the PDF files of one and for multiple submission Mary.

    I am replying to you however because our developers have started on the import tool that will allow you to easily transfer the FormCentral forms to your JotForm account.

    Please take a look at the next page for more details: http://www.jotform.com/formscentral/

    I wanted to update you Mary on amazing news - there is a way to save and transfer everything from your Adobe account to your JotForm account.

    I am not only talking about the form design, but the submissions, conditions - everything.
