    When is Jotform going to enable users to download pdfs prior to submitting them?

    Asked by amanansingh on May 28, 2015 at 11:23 AM


    We are heavy Adobe Forms users, and are trying to decide if Jotforms is the best next option for us.  A major point of contention is the fact that someone who fills in a lengthy form cannot download it as a pdf, PRIOR to submitting it.  this  is a key function we require as our forms serve as huge data captures that needs to be filled in by multiple departments and double checked prior to submitting. 

    Are there plans in the new future to provide this?

    Hello amanansingh,

    Please be noted that we already have this feature. It is now possible to download your form in PDF format which allows you to submit the form from PDF file itself. Please check the screenshot below:
