    how to save "Show headers and text" setting

    Asked by janet on June 25, 2015 at 07:21 PM

    I keep "simply" following your instructions so all of my form will print, including the headers and test but when I submit a test it keeps showing and printing the form the way it always has; no difference. How do you SAVE the setting once you have checked the box? Why doesn't all my stuff print?

    I told you in my email yesterday that I had followed the instructions you now show me in your screen shot. Am I also supposed to uncheck the Auto Hide Empty Fields box to make my headers seen or can I leave it checked. My receptionists print each submission and the paper wastage is incredible.
    Please give me a customized response to this problem, not a standard generic one.
    thanks,

    Hi Janet,

    After reviewing your submissions, I am seeing that your headers and text are being shown:

    Are you printing your forms submissions directly from your submissions page or do you use the PDF link that is sent with your form submission notification?

    We await for your response to better assist you.

    Thanks for the quick answer. I was sending in test submissions and the receptionist printed them as usual. I don’t know how they print it usually but if they should go to a pdf link I can tell them to look into it. We’ll try it out when I’m next in the office, which will be Monday.
    Can I presume that if they print as a pdf that they can also paste that pdf into the correct place in their POS system software, too, instead of physically scanning each one? I’m all into saving paper.
    thanks very much,
    janet

    Hi Janet,

    We do not know what is the POS system you were using, so we can cannot assume for an exact answer to this.

    But from what I understand so far, if the submission data is printed as PDF, then you will have the PDF file... I can only assume this far that what you wanted to achieve is for the POS system to parse the PDF file.

     

    ...can also paste that pdf into the correct place

    Can you provide more clarity on this? How do they exactly paste the pdf?

     

    Thanks.

    Thanks. Just figured out that only I have the capability to print with headers etc. because receptionists can’t get into the editing function, they just receive the emails with submissions.

    If you want to attach a PDF copy of submission to your notification you can enable it from the Email setup wizard. This option sends the PDF copy of the submissions with texts and headers as an attachment.

    Or the PDF version can also be included in the notification email body as a link also from the email setup wizard.

    Hope this information helps!!
