The Klipboard Form PDF Template Designer can be used to design the output of the Mobile Workflow Forms that have been created on the Mobile Form Builder. The data captured by the Klipboard Mobile or Tablet App Team Member on Jobs will then be outputted in PDF format designed to look just like your current paper or PDF forms.  

When you first try to edit a form, Klipboard will generate a default template which can be adapted or deleted entirely. Any changes you make to the output design must be saved for changes to take effect.
