PDF Form Submissions in weForms

You can easily download a PDF copy of any submitted form using PDF Form Submissions.

The PDF format’s strength is that it is typically easy to access in spite of the platform that you might be using. So, if you create a PDF form, then it will be easy to share. Since your customers may use a different platform, then PDFs are typically the ideal solution to share a form.

NOTE: PDF Form Submissions are only available with the Business/Developers license.
