You may sometimes want to print out a record of an individual application that's been submitted into your system. Some permits or licenses must be displayed publicly, for example, and many people like to have a printed record of a transaction.

Even thought with CityGrows there's not really a need to keep a paper record, because government staff and the applicant can access a process and see its status, some people still prefer to keep a paper copy. 

If you access any process that has been completed on CityGrows (from your dashboard, click on the application you want to print), the default screen has a Download your document link in the middle. Once it's downloaded, you can print, email, or save the document.

If the application is still in process you can still access a PDF download. First, go to the Menu section at the upper right of the screen.

Once you open the Menu, you'll see the Download PDF option about halfway down on the right side.


From there, you can download the PDF version of the application in process.

All PDF downloads include the following information:

  • Government name and logo
  • Name of process (Application type)
  • Status (Active, Completed, Halted)
  • Information about who launched the application and when it was launched.

Other information from the process is included or removed at the discretion of the government that set up the workflow. If you're an administrator, you can adjust the Document Settings from the Edit screen for each workflow.

CityGrows helps governments be more efficient and environmentally responsible by moving operations off of paper and online. But sometimes, you still need to print something out :-)
