    How to Autofill PDF template with submitted form data

    Asked by my800Credit on June 17, 2015 at 02:53 PM

    I found this product https://www.setasign.com/products/setapdf-formfiller/details/ but it would appear that I would need a PHP developer to implement this solution.

    Is there something within JotForm that would allow me to create an online form that could create a file that might auto populate an editable PDF?

    Does that make sense? If not, the above link will provide more details... the above linked product however would automatically merge the fields and send a copy of the pre Populated PDF Form automatically.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You are right, it should be possible with a custom development.

    Alternatively, you might consider trying a https://www.webmerge.me service to automatically merge submitted form data with your PDF. It is possible to integrate their service with JotForm using either itDuzzit or Zapier.
