Can I upload a form I create in MS Word to import into Jotform?

    I have an embroidery business and when we take orders I want the customer to fill out a form so all fields are correct as they entered it.  Like spelling, address, description etc.

    I found your web site and it looks like this can really work out creating the form I need and then sending the completed form back to us in an email. 


    1. Can I upload the MS Word document I have into Jotform so I don't have to re-create the form?


    If when hitting the submit button sends the form to the email I specify, can I name that specific email? I was thinking if it could capture the last name field and send it with that.


    You'll see a big area where we draw what the customer wants and how it should look.  If we are using the Jotform form on a Ipad or tablet of somekind, can we "draw" in this area?


    I'm thinking one form for one customer. What if the customer orders multiple items? Would I have to use single form for each item?  I suppose it could use last name and amend a number after it: Jones, Jones1, Jones2.... 


    Looking at the features on your web site it looks like I can also add a "checkout" area. How does that work?

    Thank you for your time and am really excited to hear back from you.  This could REALLY help us out a lot.

    Thank you for contacting us. To help you better I have split you thread in various threads, each answering a specific question.

    In regards to your first question:

    Can I upload the MS Word document I have into Jotform so I don't have to re-create the form?

    Unfortunately this is not possible. There is no means yet to import form from Word documents. So, it must be created manually using the Form Builder.

    You can also either initiate creating the form using the different tools on JoTform or use instead existing Form Templates and forms from the Theme Store that are appropriate to your requirement.
