    The Fillable PDF form basically works like an online form. Your submitters will fill up the fields and they will need to click the submit button(present on the PDF copy) to submit their submission.

    The submission will then appear to your submission page.

    Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you.

    Could you please share us more details of the problems you are having? Perhaps a screenshot would help us to better understand how the PDF form looks like in your end. We'll wait for your response.

    Please note that the fillable PDF form can be submitted when viewed using the Adobe PDF reader or Foxit
