    JotForm allows you to import a PDF form in our system, however, please note that it will NOT be editable in our form builder. What happens is that after you upload it in our system, you need to redownload it and it will allow you to collect data automatically. If someone fills out the downloaded PDF form, then the data can automatically be sent to your account.

    You can learn more about this feature on this page: http://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/. I strongly suggest recreating the form in our form builder, that will give you more access to our features and to fully maximize the use of online forms. 

    Let us know if you need more help on this.
