Downloading and Printing Forms
You will see a message that states: We are generating a file for you to download and print, and will email you at email@example.com once it is ready. The process can take up to one hour according to the amount of data. Please wait patiently before you request a new one.
The email will contain a link for you to download your requested files. Download and open the zip file. This zip file will contain a single PDF for each of your students containing all requested forms for that student. Note: that each PDF is titled by the last name then first name:
You can now print these forms in alphabetical order for all of your students at once. There are many ways to print these PDFs at once. Please see below for three suggestions:
- On Mac OS, you can select all the PDFs, right-click, and open in Preview. This will open all PDFs at once in Preview. From there, you can click File -> Print to print all PDFs at once.
- You can also do the same via Adobe Reader. Select all of the PDFs and click to open in Adobe Reader. From there, print the forms.
- Finally, you can select all the files, and drag the files into the printer dialog box.
What are the current limitations of this feature?
- Downloading forms can take some time depending on the amount of data included.
- Each form will be its own PDF (by Student or Account).
