    How to upload an existing document?

    Asked by erinjbryant on May 02, 2017 at 11:56 AM

    I have a pdf document I'd like to upload. It's only giving me the option of using an existing document or a url. I want to upload it from my desktop.

    Could you please let us know where you would like to upload the file?

    I wasn't sure if you want to embed it in the form or attach it somewhere?

    Please let us know.

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    think I need a different program.

    Unfortunately, we don't have a tool that can convert a PDF form to an online form. This tool is currently not working. Also, that tool was created for Adobe FormsCentral users.

    Please use our Form Builder to create an online form from scratch. Here's a helpful guide: How-to-create-your-first-web-form.

    After that, you can convert it to a fillable PDF, here's how:

    In My Forms page, select the form and then click the "More" button. After that, click the "Create PDF Form" option.

    Please check this user guide for more information about the fillable PDF form: JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator-With-All-Points.

    Hope that helps. If you have any questions, please let us know. Thank you.
