    I've just received my first PDFs and I'm very pleased with them. The initial trial period for this service was 3 months but I don't know whether they're extending that. If not, I believe the last date for ordering is probably 12th January.

    Mine too. No complaints from me. Fingers crossed they bring it in permanently.

    The blurb says "The pilot will run for a minimum of 3 months to enable GRO to assess the demand for this service over a prolonged period." so hopefully the trial will last for a lot longer and eventually become a permanent feature. :)

    Do they provide a way to give feedback? Can you let them know you like the service?

    Nothing specific but the GRO contact link allows you to email, telephone or write to them. :)

    When I went to download my latest PDF on Monday there was an online user survey which (if I remember right) came up automatically when I got to the 'My Order' page.

    In the email I got when they informed there was a file ready to download there was a link to a feedback survey which asks about the pdf pilot and other ideas they are looking at for making things easier for us (read them)

    ***** UPDATE *****​

    On the GRO website:

    Nine months, minimum. Excellent!

    I've ordered more PDFs than I would've done certificates over this trial period.
