Download the submissions in PDF output in one file onlyAsked by karan_cocubes on May 19, 2016 at 04:37 AM
Hi I had created a form on your platform with the name as Application Form. Now there are approx 7000+ submissions on that form. 2 things that I want is :
a) When I am trying to download the submissions in .pdf format the maximum 20 submissions are getting downloaded in one go. I want a single bulk file of all the submissions as i need to share it with a government client as it is mandated by Indian Law. Is it possible for you to share the complete file with all the submissions with me on a cloud and I download it from there?
b)I need to search for a particular candidate in all the 7400 submissions and I could not locate a search feature on the platform. Is it possible to search for a particular candidate by his name or by any other unique column?
Please reply at the earliest as we need to revert to a client. Thanks in advance.
Submissions download all
Unfortunately it is not possible if the needed output format is PDF file.
As you have seen already in the submission panel, the PDF download is broken down to multiple files.
But it is possible if your needed data file output is Excel or CSV.
Because you can crate report in Excel or CSV format, you can download the data then in one go.
I will also send this thread to our next level support and inquire if they can provide assistance to download your form submission data outside the Form Builder (in PDF format). We will notify you here for any update.
Let us know if you have further question on this topic.
Since the other question was about a different feature, I created a new thread for it here https://www.jotform.com/answers/842448
We will attend to it shortly.
