Really it is a great feature, this way we can send "Terms & Conditions" of any kind to the client to let him revise and keep it, or what else.
Beside I respect the developers of JotForm I want to mention the GREATEST support team ever of JotForm, how much care they give us to solve our technical problems and how fast they answer our inquiries with a nice manner and interest.
Aytekin Tank, you have to take care of them, because they are the second essential and vital reason make us continue with JotForm.
I love you all guys.
Have a nice day from Cairo

Brilliant extension Guys, thank you. I am still hoping to see the ability to 'enable' a form at a future date AND TIME. This would allow me create booking forms, disable them, but set a date AND TIME for them to 'go live'. You've had lots of requests for this over last two or three years.

If they fill out an evaluation with their name could it populate a certificate of attendance if they also submitted their number of contact hours they earned. It would be an honor system we could review to make sure they didn't lie. (hint everyone calls their education credits something different and has different disclaimers required so some customization would be required)

Is there a way to make up a auto-response PDF based on the answers from the responder? The responder might ask for an offer for product A + service C. As a response upon sending the request they get a thank you e-mail with a PDF-offer attached with the final price calculated along with contact details and other info?

We integrate Jotform with Google drive and a club requesting a charity grant has their application automatically saved in a Drive folder. A grants team review the application and place their comments in a google drive document (which we have to create). Is there a way of generating a comments document automatically when the application form is submitted?
