    How to Print Report with the same Form layout

    Asked by Jatiscareno on June 03, 2015 at 10:39 AM

    The report must do the following:

    1.  Be able to filter by a client's first and last name.

    2.  Be able to display all answers.

    3.  Print version must have pre-configured page breaks and field layout on the page.

     

    Is this possible?

     

    Thank you!

    Alex

    Dear Aury - 

    Before I sent the original support ticket, I did go through the report links help offered by JotForm.  Unfortunately, they provided no insight into how to do the print report layout.  Below is a link to demonstrating more or less the goal we wish to achieve with the visual report/print layout.

    Is there a way in JotForm to replicate such a layout for print after the applicant completes the existing JotForm of my client?  Please advise and thanks!

    You can print the form with its same layout with the existing applicant data already on it.

    Please check a similar idea from this thread 

    -Can-I-Print-form-Submission-with-layout-similar-to-the-created-form

     

    Steps

    1. Go to the your form submission page.

    Inside of this guide you can find out how to view submission:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-view-Submissions 

    2. Inside of submission page, click on the EDIT button on top 

    3. While you are on the Edit mode, click on the Print button of the your form.

    4. Print and follow the print dialog/instructions.

    This should give you a print output with layout similar to your form.

     

    Let us know if this still will not work for you.

    Thanks.

    Jonathan - 

     

    Thank you for the information on getting the form to generate a print report.  Here are some questions:

    1. Can the existing fields be relocated to reside side by side horizontally instead of vertically to save space on the display/print out? 

    2. For long text fields, can the question be laid out stretching from left margin to right margin and then have the answer field reside underneath (also stretching from let margin to right margin)?
     This would also save paper upon display/print out.

    3. Can an existing radio button field be converted to a drop down menu format?

    4. Is there a way to configure existing fields to be required fields for applicant input?  If so, how?

    Thank you for your time and assistance.
