Different display settings to customize your PDF are available:

  • Add a header and/or footer to your Standard PDF report. Simply add text in the two dedicated areas (Form’s options > PDF).
  • Display time under pictures, barcodes and geolocation.
  • Display user’s name. Can be useful when there are multiple users.
  • Display completion date (date when a completed form was ‘saved’).
  • Display a unique identifier.
  • Display a record number (from 1 to n… – specific to a particular form).
