    I've been asked to take an existing form as the report form. Fields would have to be fillable. Is that possible?  Can I upload the form as a pdf and then insert fillable fields as needed to make the report form?

    UPDATE (February 22, 2019): You can also import your Fillable PDF Form to Jotform inside the PDF Editor.

    1. Click on the + New PDF tab.

    2. Select New PDF Form.

    3. From the modal, you can select Import PDF Form option:

    If you want to create a fillable PDF Form, that's possible. Check this page https://www.jotform.com/products/pdf-editor/fillable-pdf-form-creator/

    You can also add images into the PDF Editor so you should be able to mimic the sample layout you've provided

    @LaurenHewitt

    Apologies for not taking the initiative. I have escalated this as a feature request for the possibility of getting this feature implemented in the future.

    I presume you want those static elements within the PDF to turn into fillable fields when imported to Jotform PDF Editor.

    Once this is implemented, we'll let you know.
