    Unfortunately there is no way to import your form on to ouor Form Builder. In which case you will need to replicate the form by composing it with our Form Builder.

    If you do need any assistance once you have begun composing the form, do let us know. Thank you.

    Hi Jeff,

    We just want to update you regarding this matter. Our developers have just released a new awesome feature that will let you import fillable PDF forms to Jotform. Please check it at this link:

    Choose the third option, the PDF Only:

    Importing your fillable PDF form may take a couple of days, but we will send you an email once the form(s) are ready.

    Thank you!
