    Hello RCG,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that you have few field in form which has default value which is not appearing in the submission PDF.

    I did check your form and found that you have 3 date field with default value. I did check your form's submission page and it does display the default value correctly. Please check the screenshot below:


    I would suggest you to please share a screenshot of the issue. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you how to upload image in forum post:  http://www.jotform.com/answers/277033

    Hello RCG,

    Please accept my apology. I was able to understand the issue when I downloaded the submission PDF file. It does not display the default value along with other fields. Please check the screenshot below:


    It seems you have customized the PDF template. I would suggest you to please reset the PDF template and that should solve your problem. Please check the screenshot below on how to reset PDF template:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
