    It is the same. If the PDF file is located in two different devices, and the 2 people fill it and submit it, it will create two different unique submissions.

    You can download the PDF file multiple times to different local drives, let say 7 PDF files in 7 different devices, and if each one is submitted, that will generate 7 unique submission.
