Ok I don’t get it. I have tried to save a file map several times. I keep getting message about naming dataset. When i choose a name from the drop down it give me this crazy list of “empty….” list. Don’t know what to choose. Is there one of those for every entry of the form? Why, after spending an hour mapping fields, does it fart on that item and clears my mapped fields?!!!!. So frustrating!
Let us know in detail if this was not the cause if the issue you are having with the field map layout.
Regarding spending time creating the field map… Time is better spent naming the PDF field names the same as the Formidable field name (or field keys) and using the “Enable automated layout creation for new field maps” found on the Settings tab to automatically generate the field map layout.
