    I need to import a pdf form into JotForms

    Asked by jcrowe on February 27, 2015 at 12:47 PM

    I need to import a pdf form into JotForms. Can this be done?

    We have order forms that are currently in PDF form and are printed, filled out, and then scan to the order desk.  We would like to streamline this process by creating a webform using Jotforms.  Can you help with this?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to import PDF forms into JotForm. Created JotForm based forms can be imported as PDF forms, but we do not have an opposite PDF -> Form option.

    I think that you will need to manually create the webform using JotForm editor.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    Hi @jcrowe,

    We are very pleased to inform you that you can now import a fillable PDF form to Jotform.

    Choose "PDF Only" after clicking Import Forms button:

    Note that it may take a couple of days for the forms to appear in your account, but our developers are doing their best to speed up the process. Once your forms are ready, we'll send you an email about it.

    Thank you!
