Available from within the mobile app

Now you can view the PDF version of a form right from the XForms Mobile app (iOS, Android, and web versions).  It’s easy, simple, and fast.  Here are the steps:

  • Submit a form from the mobile app as usual
  • Tap on the form from the mobile app dashboard
  • On the bottom of the form viewer, tap on the small paper icon
  • After tapping on this icon, the PDF will load in a new screen, where you will be able to do the usual actions (view it, share it via text message/email/Teams/Whatsapp, etc, print to a mobile printer, etc)

Some limitations

This is a new release of this feature, and as such it has some limitations.  It’s currently limited to the online mode of XForms.  So you have to be online in order to view the PDF.  If, however, you already viewed the form, and THEN you flip to offline, the PDF will be accessible to view it and print to a mobile printer.

Here’s a short video of this in action.
