    Is there an option to output forms as PDF or Word document?

    Asked by rstella on May 27, 2015 at 05:42 PM

    Is there a way to output forms as individual PDF or Word documents, as opposed to outputting in Excel format? If so, how would we retrieve them once submitted? Thank you.

    If I understand you correctly, you want to create a fillable PDF form right? Wherein your users can open the fillable PDF form and then submit it. You can use our fillable PDF creator: http://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/

    If this is not what you need, then you are probably referring to the submissions. You can download the submissions as a PDF, Excel or CSV but not as a Word document. In the submissions page, you will see an option to download them as a PDF. Please refer to this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-view-Submissions

    If you have any questions, let us know. Thank you.
