    Can previously created pdf forms be imported to jotform as they can in Adobe forms

    Asked by tmonkaba on February 05, 2015 at 10:03 AM

    Adobe allows the user to import previously created pdf forms and allow the user to fill them in and submit their information online.  Does Jotform have this capability?

    Unfortunately we do not currently have the ability to create JotForm forms from a PDF.  It is possible to create a PDF from your form, but not the other way around.

    If you are trying to import your Adobe Forms Central forms, we have recently completed our tool to allow you to import both your forms and their data from Adobe Forms Central to JotForm:


    Due to high demand currently, forms are importing fairly quickly, 10 minutes or so, but data is taking in some cases up to a full day to completely migrate.  This is of course for larger accounts. 

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
