    Is there a way to pre-populate the created Fillable PDF Form?

    Asked by sonoranserenityspa on June 08, 2015 at 06:26 PM
    Is there a way to have the results populate in the actual form itself?  What I was doing before (and loved - I'm so mad at Adobe for discontinuing FormsCentral) was downloading the results of the submission as a PDF (which looked exactly like the form) and then opening it on my iPad with Acrobat and having the client sign in person. Even with your download as PDF feature, it does not preserve the form, so I can no longer do that.

    Unfortunately no. It is not yet possible to have a pre-populated Fillable PDF Form with data when generated at this time.

    Here is the user guide on  -How-to-Create-a-PDF-Form

    Please let us know if there is more we can assist you with.

    Thanks.
