When it comes to managing your form data, Jotform provides the quickest and easiest way to view submissions. And if you want to download form submissions as Excel, CSV, or PDF files, it’s pretty straightforward. Just follow the steps below:

  1. Go to your My Forms page.
  2. Select the form with the submissions you want to download.
  3. Click the Submissions button in the top toolbar.
  1. Click the Download All button on the top right side of the page.
  2. Choose your file format to begin the download process.

For both CSV and Excel, the download will automatically start. For PDF, a zip file will be created and sent to your primary email address. You’ll get the following message after clicking the PDF option:


It may take some time for the ZIP file to be created based on the number of submissions in your form.

Did you know that we have a PDF Editor where you can change the default design of the PDF copy of your form submissions? Please visit the following links for more information: Jotform PDF Editor

Filter Your Submissions in Jotform Tables

If you have a large number of submissions, and you want to download them based on a date range, use the filter. Click on the filter (All time) and choose from the predefined list of options, or click on the Custom dates option.


You can select specific submissions from the list. The number of selected submissions will appear on the Download button. Click the button, and select your preferred file format to start the download.
