    I want to create 3 similar forms and integrate them all into a PDF

    I am hoping you can walk me through one more thing. I want to create 3 similar forms and integrate them all into a PDF. Any chance you have a thread for that? Or maybe I haven’t gone far enough into trying to figure it out.

    You can convert your web form into a PDF form. However, it has some limitations, the calculation feature is not supported, because widgets nor conditions are available for PDF forms: https://www.jotform.com/help/312-Fillable-PDF-Everything-you-need-to-know-about-JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator

    That makes sense to me.  I'm hoping I can do 2 things:

    1) Put the forms into PDF format for those who will just print out the document.

    2) Adding a link or page in the PDF that will take them to the electronic / web form that they can complete electronically. Does that make sense?  So if they are viewing the pdf of the entire document and they get to the form - it will take them to the JotForm page???

     

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    To answer your concerns:

    1) Yes, you can have your forms into PDF format. You can follow this guide for the steps to create PDF forms: https://www.jotform.com/help/212-How-to-create-a-PDF-form

    2) You can add a link on your form so that once it is clicked, it will lead the person to your web form page. Simply add a Text element in your form and then add the link there. Here's an animated screenshot:

    Please let us know if you have more questions.

    Thanks.
