    How can I create a jotform from an exisitng fillable pdf form?

    Asked by panhandlepet on October 19, 2015 at 11:45 AM

    I know this used to be easy to do but I can't find any support for it now. I have a very lengthy fillable pdf form that I would like to import into Jotform so I can phase out the old process. I know it's easy to create jotform - I've made many. It would just be very time consuming to recreate this particular form. I have my fingers and toes crossed there's an easy fix for this. PLEASE.

    You can try to use the option available on this website to import your PDF forms to Jotform.


    However, options like editing the form fields, notifications, etc... would not be possible. The form will also not be available on the web. Once it is imported to your account, you can just simply create a PDF copy of it using this guide: How-to-Create-a-PDF-Form

    Submission data will still be stored within your account like a normal form when your PDF form is submitted. 

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.
