Is it possible for users to export a .pdf form after filling out an online form?

    We would like an online form embedded on our website for users to fill out data but then we would like the data to populate into an exportable .pdf for them to print.

    I.e. the user is filling out the name and then the name gets populated onto a printable certificate.

     

    Name:

     

    (button) "Print your certificate"

     

    Does that make sense?

    You can do that by adding a "Print" button in your form. But, you'll need to add a note in your form to let your users to print the form before clicking submit to have a copy of it. Here's a guide on that: http://www.jotform.com/help/24-Print-Button-on-Forms. Please do try testing it first.

    I hope that works.

    Thank you.

    If they print it, it prints the sides of my website etc. I want them to have a "certificate" that they could potentially hang on their wall so it would need to be a separate document.

    Hi,

    You can use a custom Autoresponder E-mail template.

    Refer to this guide -Creating-a-Form-Autoresponder

    Basically, you will customize the auto response e-mail body to match your certificate requirements.

    Every time the form is submitted, the e-mail/certificate will be sent to the form responder, which they can now use as certificate copy, and even print for hard copy.

    You can insert images, HTML and various other elements to create the certificate you would like.
