    Can I use an already existing pdf form?

    Asked by Jean Claude Kandagaye  on May 20, 2015 at 10:18 AM

    I dynamically generate my filled - in pdf form and then send it for data collection. FormsCentral allowed me to host this form and collect the responses. Would this be the same with Jotform? 

    Thanks!

    Hi Jean,

    You have to import the PDF into your Jotform account then re-generate the form as a fillable PDF. You can import your current PDF form here:

    https://www.jotform.com/adobe-formscentral-alternative/

    Choose "PDF Only" import:

     

    Enter your email address and upload the PDF file:

    You will receive an email from us once the import process is done.

    Then here's how you can generate a fillable PDF:

    Or, through this page: https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you.
