    How do I take an existing PDF file and concert that into a JotForm file?

    Asked by joshua18 on February 03, 2017 at 10:55 PM

    I need to take an existing PDF file that I have and turn it into a JotForm file. I want to be able to send the link out and make the PDF file "writable". How do i do this? I do not want to manually insert ever question on this form, Is there a way to drop my current PDF and JotForm to do the rest?

    Hello joshua18,

    If your PDF file is not a fillable PDF to begin with, it will not convert to become fillable on JotForm. Importing a PDF from your file to be able to be utilized to receive submissions to your JotForm account requires the PDF to be a fillable one.

    With this, what you can do is manually create a form, make it appear similar to the layout of your PDF and then export the file to be a fillable PDF form (which is another JotForm feature).

    If you have questions, please let us know.

    Thanks.
