    How can I eliminate blank responses when printing the submited form?

    Jay Eugster

        I am using a lot of skip logic on an employment application.  When printing the application out, I have many pages that don't need to be there.  I get the same thing on the email notice I receive, even though I have the checkbox marked not to include blank responses.

       

      Thanks for you help.

          Hi Jay;

           

          When you say you are printing out the submitted from, are you using the "Download Response as PDF"?  There isn't any way to hide unanswered questions in the PDF.  I was trying to think if you could export responses as Excel and hide the unanswered columns but since those would be different per responder that would not work.  I am not sure of a way to do this at the moment, if I come up with something I will respond again.

           

          Regarding the emails, there is not an option to hide blank responses in the "Email Notifications" (that goes to you, the author).  There is an option in the "Email Receipts" for the "Email Submission Reciept" that goes to the person who submitted the form (assuming they enter their email into an email field you selected), in there is an option to include empty fields (ommited by default).

           

          You may want to add a feature request to the ideas page for the "Email Notification" to have an option to exclude blank responses, you can do that here by clicking "Create an idea" in the upper right:  http://forums.adobe.com/community/formscentral?view=idea

           

          Thanks,

          Josh
