    Most of what I would like to do can easily be handle by Jotform. I am wondering if there is an existing integration that would allow me to populate fields in a form from existing text in a PDF (to extract dates mostly)

    Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    I am afraid there is no option in Jotform to prefill forms from PDFs.

    Converting a PDF form/file into a web form is possible:

    Some kind of OCR integration for submitted data might be possible with 3rd party integrations, for example: Jotform submission > Zapier > Docparser.
