    How to import PDF forms into JotForm?

    Asked by Allen Masters on March 10, 2017 at 02:45 PM

    Is it possible to upload a PDF to generate a Jotform and use that PDF on the back side to email as people respond to the form.  I found a tool that would show it may been available at https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/.  It does not every do anything but send me email that says:

    Oops, Import Failed!

    That tool works with forms create on  Adobe Forms Central, if your form was not created there then you may not be able to import it. 

    You would need to create your form on form builder and then export it as PDF, these guides will help you to start building your form:

    And this guide will help you to export your form as PDF: How-to-Create-a-PDF-Form

    Hope this helps.
