    Can I create an interactive PDF form?

    Asked by csbroadview on April 21, 2014 at 01:03 PM

    I've just created a form that I'd like to be able to e-mail people to fill out as well as post it to our website. However, I can only find instructions for creating a static PDF form. Is there an option to create an interactive form that I can download? Thanks!

    Unfortunately, interactive PDF forms are not supported. We have a lot of different types of form fields, payment forms, calculations, integrations with third party services, so it is not likely that PDF document can handle it.

    Please not that static PDF form can be filled and manually emailed back to you:
