    Yes, you can download a form and save it on your computer as a PDF. Here's how:

    1. Select the form on the My Forms page.

    2. Click the "More" button and then select "Create PDF Form".

    Please refer to this guide for further information.

    Thank you.

    Maybe I wasn't clear. Sorry about that.

    What I meant was if is there an option that allows to the user of a form, to download the form (directly from itself, as a PDF file or something) instead of just submitting it?

    I want to use a form as a platform to manage requests from my co-workers. The thing is that it's not functional for us to receive the form submissions as an email, I'd rather have them as a PDF file

    Form: https://form.jotform.com/53217084520953

    Please let me know if I'm being clear and if it is possible.

    I know how to download PDF files from JotForm. The problem is that I'm not giving access to all the co-workers to JotForm, and it has to be a real-time solution

    If I understand you correctly, you would like users to print/download the form in PDF format before they submit it.

    This can be done by adding the print button on your form.

    If your users have adobe reader or a PDF reader, they should be able to save the filled form in PDF when they try printing the PDF.

    Please let us now if this helps.
