    We like to delete old instances of the form from the on-demand server so we have more free disk space. We don’t have a print button on the form, is there a way to save them all to pdf format on the local computer? there are 500+ instance out there.


    You could write a script that on submission would print and save to the local file system (PerfectForms’ professional services could do it for you as well). The challenge is that you want to do it after the fact. You would have to modify the form, map the old instances to the new version and then create a parent form to open all the old instances so they could submit and print.

    It would be much easier to simply export the instance data to CSV. It will be in our schema, but we have already built the functionality for you as described in our help guide: /Documentation/manual/html/?d_exportingformsandformdata.htm

    The system used to have a print option at the Admin console, now it is gone, can we have it back? For auditing purpose, the CSV file will not work. Thanks.


    There is no Admin Console on the On Demand system. There was never an option to print every instance of a form. If my other suggestions don’t meet your requirements you can modify your form (add a print button), publish the change, and map the old instances to the new version. Then manually open, print, save the PDF, and submit each instance before deleting them.
