    The link you provided appears to be a PDF file. You may use our Fillable PDF Form Creator but keep in mind it has some limitations. Our system will try its best to replicate the fields but it will never look exactly like the PDF.

    You can upload a PDF form and convert it into an online JotForm form using our Fillable PDF Form Creator.

    To get it converted, do the following:

    1. Go to this page https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/

    2. Click the CREATE A FILLABLE PDF FORM button.

    3. Click the UPLOAD button.

    4. Type in your email address > upload the PDF form > then hit SUBMIT.

    5. Afterwards, you'll receive an email similar to this.

    All that's left now is to wait for another email confirmation once it's finished. The time it takes highly depends on the complexity of the PDF file you uploaded.

    Your other query about e-signatures has been moved to a separate thread https://www.jotform.com/answers/1141745

    We'll have it addressed there shortly.
