    How to get the submission data filled out in actual form?

    Asked by tania2473 on April 20, 2015 at 02:22 AM


    We currently use form central and currently get our submission come down to us in the same pdf form as the form they have sent.  Is it possible to the submission to look the same as the form we gave them but with their details filled out.  I have tried testing it but all that comes back are the heading and their answer.  We forward completed forms on to other parties to action.  Or we print completed forms out for people to sign.

    Hello Tania,

    Unfortunately it is currently not possible to receive the submission data within the form itself but with a little workaround it is possible to achieve your requirement. 

    You will have to add "{edit_link}" tag in your from's notification email template. When the form is submitted, you will receive the submission email which will display a clickable link. Clicking on the link will open the submission in the edit mode in the same form which you can print.

    Please check the screenshot below on how to add the "{edit_link} tag in the submission email template:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
