  2. It would be good to have the ability to map form fields to places in pdf file. This way we could create a form that would fulfill contracts that user could download, print and send to our company.

    1. Hi José,

      I’m familiar with the type of option you’re describing, and I’ve noted that on our feature request list. Thanks for the suggestion! 🙂

    1. Hi Tomo,

      Fields with extra text (Section Dividers, Page Breaks, HTML fields) are not stored with the entry and so will not be included when an entry is printed. I agree this would be a helpful option, though, and have noted it on our feature request list for consideration down the road 🙂

  3. Ok thanks. I need to be able to print the individual sheet. There’s no way to do a batch print of all entries though? We have to go one by one?

    1. Hi G,

      Yes, that’s correct — we don’t currently have a way to print a bunch of entries all at once. I can definitely see how this could be a useful option, though, and I’ve added this to our feature request list for consideration down the road.

      If you have any additional questions, please submit a ticket — we’ll be able to reply faster from there 🙂 Thanks!

    1. Hi Caroline – We don’t currently have any way to do this, but I’ve added the idea to our feature request list for possible consideration. I’m sorry we can’t provide this option for you right now, but thanks for the suggestion! 🙂

    1. Hi Simon,

      Once the user receives an email notification after they’ve submitted the form, they can print it out via their browser if they’d like.

  4. Hi all !

    It would be very helpful, when a form is submitted, to get a notification email with an attached pdf document including all fields.

    Is it something on your list?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Greg,

      We don’t have a way to do this right now, but I’ve made a note on our feature request list so we can keep it on our radar! Thanks for the suggestion 🙂

  5. I would love to see the option for users to print their forms out right before submitting the form. My client wants this and I’m trying to figure out a way for the users to have nice looking print outs like this one. 🙁

    1. Hi Trinity,

      We don’t have a way to do this right now, but I’ve made a note on our feature request list so we can keep it on our radar! Thanks for the suggestion 🙂

    1. Hi Ali,

      We don’t have a way to do this right now, but I’ve made a note on our feature request list so we can keep it on our radar! Thanks for the suggestion 🙂
