    Asked by sakerr on January 03, 2017 at 11:41 AM

    I have job application that is is PDF form.  Is it possible to use that editable PDF on the site and let people fill it out and submit it from here?  I noticed you do have a service to make PDF's editable.

    I am not exactly sure if I understood your question correctly. 

    From what I understood you have PDF form that is not JotForm form and you want to import it to Jotform. This is possible. You can use this link https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/, click on Create Fillable PDF form and then select Convert PDF form option.

    However you will not be able to edit imported PDF form and add new fields. 

    Only our online forms can be edited. 

    Possible solution is to use our form builder and create new form. When you create new form you can convert it to Fillable PDF form. Then you will also be able to edit your form inside of our form builder, add new field and then create new updated version of your Fillable PDF form. 

    More about Fillable PDF forms you can find inside of this guide:

    If I did not understood your question correctly, please explain in more details what you are trying to achieve. 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
