    Hi There,

    I am looking for a form that can be send to a candidate that they complete from their smart phone and the information come back to me in a form it can then be uploaded onto my database.  Can you explain how jotform works?  Also how does this work in terms of Adobe Acrobat DC.

    To create your first form here in jotform, please check this helpful guide: How-to-Create-Your-First-Web-Form

    If you want to send the submissions data to an external database, please check the guide below.

    You can directly send the information from your JotForm form to their MySQL database: https://www.jotform.com/help/126-Form-to-MySQL 

    You can send your submission data via POST method. Here are some additional guides links that might help: PHP-Forms-Explained 

    Send Submission data via POST in your Thank You page: Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page 

    You can also use Webhook if you don't want the PHP script in your "Thank You" page: How-to-Setup-Webhook-with-JotForm 

    Also, how does this work in terms of Adobe Acrobat DC?

    If you will create a fillable PDF version of your online form then you can use it offline and then submit the form when the internet is available through Adobe PDF reader.

    Let us know if you are referring to something else.
