Hello. I'm trying to figure out how to include a fillable field in the PDF versions of the submissions.
Basically, I have a document that is sent to a person who then has to sign off on it before sending it to someone else. I want it so they can get the PDF submission, type their name into a fillable field, and send it to the next person.
How can this be done? Thanks!

Unfortunately, you cannot add a fillable field to the PDF version of the submissions.
What you can do, is to add a Short Text field to your form and hide it.
In the PDF settings, you UNCHECK the option to Auto Hide Empty Fields.
This will only create a space on the PDF but it will not be fillable.

Here is a simple example I made.
Just fill this form with your email and you should receive a PDF version of your submission with the hidden field.
