    Need to export full form with responses (Urgent)

    Asked by vdadalyan on March 05, 2016 at 09:10 PM

    Hi, I'm hoping you can help us out.

    We have a form we use which must be exported to PDF or other format in its entirety.

    All text and all responses need to be exported into this document.

    I have contact you about this before and was instructed to print to PDF from the submissions area.

    This is not what we need, we need to present the power of attorney statement to the people we work with and having only imputed responses will not do.

    This is a very important and urgent need and I hope you can help as we have an email campaign pointing to this specific page as an action.

    As we receive more and more submissions, this becomes more and more problematic.


    Thank you for your time,

    I assume this is the form http://www.jotform.us/form/52008383109147 in concern. (do let us know if not)

    You can easily download the Submission data of the form in the View Submission page.

    Use the Get PDF button to download the data in PDF format.


    Now, to include and show also the statement (power of attorney) on the output, you need to enable Texts and Headers option in the submission page.

    Follow this user guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/305-How-to-show-headers-or-text-for-contracts-terms-agreements-in-the-PDF-format-of-a-submission

    Hope this help. Let us know if you are still not able to get your form data.

    Thank you, I think that will do the trick.

    One problem though, the form is encrypted so the system isn't letting me do this.

    Is my only option to export this way have to make it an unsecured form?

    Turned off encryption and tried exporting the form submission as a PDF but unfortunately the past encrypted submissions are still garbled. Is there a workaround?
