Preview and Download Forms

1. Feature Overview

You can enable your users and leads to preview and download forms. A special ‘Preview’ field is available in the form builder, that allows them to view the information they’ve entered before form submission. It also enables them to download a PDF version of the form, to ensure all the details entered are accurate. This helps your leads avoid making errors while submitting a form, and also caters to use cases where forms need to be downloaded and physically submitted.  For example, when your leads fill college applications, when your users fill loan applications, contracts, etc.


  • You can upload your own custom HTML template to customize the look and feel of the preview form.
  • To know more about LeadSquared forms, see How to Create a Form.
