    Can I download all submissions as separated PDF files at once?

    Asked by alexzanderdausch on May 29, 2015 at 03:38 PM

    Hi there,

    I need to be able to download all submissions received as PDF's. I know you can do this in the submissions page by selecting "download PDF" at the top of the page, as well as getting individual PDFs by clicking that option on each submission below. HOWEVER, I need to be able to download all the submissions at once, but as separate PDF files. So each submission would download as its own PDF file, but I don't want to go through and have to do them all one at a time, then download all the attachments AND rename them. My intention is to add all of these to Google Drive, because while that integration works great, it won't add submissions made prior to it having been integrated. There must be a way, right? I love the Google Drive integration and I also utilize Google Spreadsheet integration. That said, I need to be able to use both and Google Drive integration previously did not work for us, so I am now re-adding it.

    Aside from that, It would just be nice to download the submissions all as separate PDF's at one time, and have them properly named and include their attachments, just like the Google Drive integration does, so they can be saved on a hard drive. Please help! I am a huge JotForm lover and supporter, but this is a big hurdle for me and I need some kind of reasonable solution that does not involve me individually downloading and renaming 90 submissions and all their attachments. Thanks so much!

     

    The form I most want to do this with is here: http://www.jotform.us/form/42266117015143

    That said, I want to be able to do this with any of the forms I have built so far. Thanks! I will look forward to a reply.

    Unfortunately, we don't have such feature at this moment.

    But, you might be able to split the PDF file that is generated with all the submissions in it into separate files with a 3rd party software as described here: http://www.convertpdf.org/split-a-pdf-into-separate-files.html

    For the uploaded files, you can see a guide on how to download them all using a Firefox plugin here: http://www.jotform.com/help/315-Downloading-File-Uploads-in-the-form-using-DownThemAll-Mozilla-Firefox-Extension. We also have a ruby app that you can find here: http://apps.jotform.com/app/file_downloader

    Let us know if this could work for you.
