    Exporting one single submission to PDF works great ... but is there a possibility to export all to pdf rather than to excel. Printing excel files is just a nightmare! :D

    If I'm understanding your inquiry correctly, you would like to be able to download the excel submissions list in PDF format.  If so, I don't think this is possible since not all forms can easily fit in a PDF or paper as a lot of forms being created by users have a long list of questions and data that extends down to the horizon.

    If you have a solution in mind, please do let us know.

    Thanks.

    I'd like this feature, too.  I'm not too worried about PDF length.

    To make the printouts shorter, you could have checkboxes for the export fields just like you do for tables and other reports.

    You could also have checkboxes to tick for selecting multiple submissions to send to PDF, so that if there are say 20 submissions I need to export I can tick them and do one export.

    I love the pdf option on a single submission. It usually has a great layout if you just use basic widgets like name, text, email etc. So I'm not too concerned about that. Even if people write long texts it goes nicely to the second page.

    For example I have a form people have to fill in to become member of our organisation. Be nice if I could use generate a pdf doc that's basically just a sum of all individual submission pdfs. With a page break after each submission.

    It's just an idea though. I did them one by one now. But when it's like a hundred, I'll pass :)

    Cheers for the quick repsonse :D

    I have created a feature request ticket to our developers. However, I can not say when or if this feature will be implemented.

    We will update this thread once we get any more news.
