Hey Olive -- great plugin!

 I'm wanting to use it as a type of extended "registration" and gather a lot of info from customers. We'll need them to come in and sign the form once submitted online, so I'm looking for an easy way to print a single record from the Tracking database.

 I know that I could download the record as a CSV file and then import that into a report template that would line up all the fields, but that's too many steps for my non-technical staff.

It would be nice to have a 'print record' button that would grab the selected record, open a new window with a customized template, and populate the template with the record's data. Any ideas / code snippets / extensions / help?

 Cheers mate, 

Ben

I hope you're not suggesting that you are looking for the complete code supporting a comprehensive print function.. ;-)

Serisouly, your best bet is to simply use the admin mail feature and setup a well designed HTML template with the input field variables built in. Add all relevant staff recipients to the admin email address field.

This way everyone gets a copy and can simply print of their email client – that'd be one step. Can't get any simpler.

Tim, you can use (any) your preferred HTML editor and create an HTML template to your desire, as fancy as you want it to be.

Just make sure that in places where you'd like to embed the data of a form input field to use the exact form field labels (actual name part) to properly reference the fields!
