    FEATURE REQUEST: Live and Online Interactive Create a PDF File

    Asked by webusermy on April 19, 2013 at 07:05 AM

    This just pretty much "prints" the form into a pdf file.

    It would be cool if it actually created an interactive pdf file where users can fill it up on their PC and print it out to submit manually, if desired.

    This is a re-post of a comment on How to Create a PDF Form

    Hello and thanks for your input. Based on what you are saying I think you mean that you want an online pdf version of the form to be created that can be filled out, submitted or printed.

    I have gone ahead and added your suggestion to our Feature Request List for consideration by our developers. They will look over your request as soon as they can and we will get back to you.

    The PDF form you create on My Forms page is like that. You can fill the form and submit or print it. But, it does ot support all fields such as datetimepicker. So you should use the basic fields on your forms.

    This site is really amazing to create and use forms especially where we want the user to upload files.

    I just want to know only one thing from you. I noticed that the uploaded files get saved on a default path and accessed from there. Is there a way to send the file directly as attachment without having a copy in the folder.

    When you take a form which has fillinable fields and PayPal payment.  If the client hits the PayPal  button and makes the payment will the form be sent to the email addresses provided?

    We have been using Jotform since the inception.  You have created a great product and super support!!
