    Boilerplate on form that DOES show up in PDF report

    Asked by akabelowsky on November 09, 2015 at 01:25 PM

    Hello, I want to create a form to generate a paper printout for a freelance payment request. It's all set up except for one thing: There must be boilerplate text at the bottom of the form, which Accounting Dept. can use to write in the coding and other information it needs to process the check. When I put just a text box on the form with that info in it, it did not show up in the report. So I created text boxes for it, and I had problems with that too. Is there a way to just put that boilerplate in so that it WILL show up on the PDF report form so I can print it out and send it downstairs? Thanks

     

    PS: Everything from "BUSINESS OFFICE USE" on down would be best as boilerplate for me, leaving space for Accounting folks to write in the necessary data. Everything should be on its own line, so seven lines with enough space for a little writing.

    Hi,

    While viewing your submissions, there is an option to include headers and text in your submissions:

    Here is a bit more in depth guide on having your printed/PDF form look like the full contract:

    This will include any additional text or images that are added to the form, in the PDF copy of your submission data.

    Let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.
