    Asked by jdugdale on July 28, 2017 at 07:45 PM

    We have dozens of PDF forms.  Can we import them into Jotform so they are fillable online?

    You can upload your fillable PDF forms so that you can collect and save the submissions directly to your JotForm account. You can check this link: https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/

    When you click the "Create Fillable PDF Form" button, you'll see the options shown below. You can choose the 2nd option if you have an existing PDF form. 


    Note that this will not convert your form to a JotForm online form. Instead, it will allow you to have a fillable PDF form that you can download and share to your users. If they filled out the converted fillable PDF form and hit the submit button there, the data is automatically sent to your JotForm account.

    If you want to take advantage of the online JotForm forms, I suggest recreating your forms using our online form builder. With that, you can take advantage of the other features that we have.

    I hope that helps.
