Create a PDF/Print Out of a Filled/Unfilled Form

While digital data collection eliminated the need for paper versions of the form, sometimes users want a paper version or a single soft-copy of a filled or unfilled form for their records or to share with others. Enketo webforms allow users to generate these paper or soft-copy versions of their forms.

Unfilled Form

To create a PDF or print out of an unfilled form:

  • Upload the form
  • Click the webform icon (shown below from the form’s Overview page)

  • Once the form loads, click the printer icon in the upper right corner (shown below).You can either print it from a connected printer or print to a PDF to save on your local Machine. Please see the below section on Print to a PDF for a detailed step-by-step guide.

 

Note: The light grey text are the questions with relevant conditions and are not always asked while filling in the form, whereas the dark text are questions without relevant conditions and always asked while filling in the form.

Filled Form

To create a PDF or print out of a filled form:

  • Navigate to the form’s Table page.
  • Navigate to the record you want to print and double click anywhere in its row.
  • A pop-up window will appear. Select Edit and the filled webform will load. Please see this guide for more information on editing a record.
  • Alternatively, you can click the Edit Icon to the left of the record on the Table page (shown below).
