Structure of a PDF download 


By design, PDF versions of reports cannot be edited. The PDF versions of SaferMe reports include report details, comments, manage tab details such as state changes and tasks.

The data is structured and fixed.  If information on the pdf is incorrect, an admin can go into the SaferMe web app, edit the original report by selecting the report card, and then download the edited version. 

An organisations logo is not able to be added to the PDF inside SaferMe, however, the name of the organisation will show up at the top of the report in bold. 



The three titles listed at the top represent;

1. Organisation Name 

2. Channel / Form Name

3. Report Summary Title
