    I have reviewed your learning material and I haven't seen what I need - even though I feel it's possible with your system.

    I have a PDF that is a government form ( Already created)

    I would like the form to be filled out by the user - THEN - the final product is presented in a downloadable PDF.

    Process:  USER FORM -> DATA FILLS IN PDF --> PDF is available for download.

    QUESTION: can I have the PDF fields populated with user form data?

    I am not sure if I understand your query correctly. If you want to create a PDF document to send with the form submitted data, you may create one from the PDF editor. 


    Let us know if you are referring something different. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Im sorry, let me try again...

    I wan the USER to create a form ( which will have variable data, Name, Adrees, Phone..etc) 

    and that will fill out the online form and then download the final PDF.

    The quwstion is that I need the final form to be the exact government form ( PDF)

    The forms are avail but they are too complicated for users to fill out -- this jot form will be an easy form - broken into steps...

    Please note that JotForm is an online form builder to create any type of forms to collect responses from your users. You may create any type of form viz., contact forms, surveys, application forms, order forms, sign-up forms, RSVP, etc using JotForm by using its intuitive drag and drop method in the form builder. We request you to go through our FAQS for more detailed information. 


    Once the form is filled and submitted by the user, the information shall be stored in your account and you may generate a PDF document as per your requirement

    If you are referring to the already existing PDF forms and populate the data to them, unfortunately, it is not possible with JotForm.

    Hope this information helps!
