    Hello lorilal,

    Were you logged in to your account when your created your form? We do have auto save feature which saves the form automatically. Please be noted that you do not loose the form even if you are not logged in to your account. Your form is saved automatically under a guest account. That means it is highly unlikely that your form will be lost.

    You may also like to be aware that we also have "Revision History" feature which will help you in reverting your form to an earlier version. If you accidentally make changes in your form, you can take advantage of "Revision History" feature to revert back your form.

    I did check your account and found that the form is saved successfully. Please take a look at the following form: 

    Please sign in to your account and you should be able to see the form.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for this information. One more question if I have my webmaster add a pdf form to our website. Can I then import this PDF document as a"Clone" into Jotform? Then Jotform will revise the form to a web format so that clients can complete the form online?
    Below is my Webmasters email and she is asking about the format. No need for her to do coding as apparently this is Jotforms function with documents if I understand correctly?
    I will also be using and will have this form available for mobile customers as well as customers visiting the website.

    "Are you wanting a client to be able to download the enrollment form in PDF or Word, fill out electronically on their computer, save the document, and upload via a web form that gets sent to you via email, and then get sent to the PayPal page where the client is responsible for adding up all the costs and paying the correct amount?"
    Thank you,

    If the PDF form is from Form's Central, it is possible to import it to your JotForm account, please go to this link:, and click on Import Your Forms button, then choose "PDF only":

    Just to let you know, it will still be a PDF form, meaning that a PDF form can not be converted to a webform. If you need a webform, you need to create it from the scratch:

    On regards of mobile responsiveness, you can make your web forms mobile responsive, here is how:
