Social Element

Using pre-set Social icons, you can guide your audience to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and several other pages. Ask for reviews, follows, and likes so you can engage your audience when they are roaming around their social networks.

  1. Find the form on your account with the PDF output to be designed or updated. In-line with the form name, select Edit PDF.
  2. Toggle to the Elements tab (four boxes in a 2x2 grid) and click-and-drag the Social element to the desired location on your PDF.PDF Designer_Social Media Element.png
  3. Select the Social element and then check the box next to each icon you want displayed on your PDF. You may check more than one and you don't need more than one element to have each social media icon displayed.                                PDF Designer_Social Media_Settings.png
  4. Enter the URL for your social pages.

Social Media Element Settings

The element can be justified to the left, center, or right within it's column or section.


Use Global Settings
Uncheck Global Settings so you can manipulate this specific element separate from other fields and elements in the PDF.
Vertical Spacing
Once Global Settings is unchecked, the element can have as much or as little vertical space as is desired, from 0 to 20px.

GoCanvas Tip

If the social icon you want is not available, simply add it as an Image Element instead.
