    Thank you for contacting. If you imported your PDF, and you want to send it to someone, so they can fill it, you can do it via email: https://www.jotform.com/help/303-How-to-Send-a-Form-via-Email

    If you want your form to be private, and be filled by specific people, then you can use the Assign Form feature: https://www.jotform.com/help/652-Adding-assignees-to-your-form

    Let us know if you need more help.

    Hi, thank you for replying. I've tried attaching link as described, but the when accessing the form via the link the format is not displaying in correct order. When downloading it as a fillable pdf it is fine and format is correct. What am I doing wrong?

    Also is it secure to simply attach the download to an email from my email account? 

    I'm nervous about using the encryption key method as it seems more risky if I lose key.

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    You may add a password on the form to add an extra layer of security:
