    Converting PDF form

    Asked by Gina Kraft  on September 06, 2016 at 11:42 AM


    I have a PDF form that I need converted to an online form and I'm wondering if this is something I can do on JotForm. It's a smart form that calculates the price of a service depending on what the customer selects. Would I have the capability of developing something like this myself on this website, with absolutely no knowledge of coding, or is this something I would have to hire a developer to help me with? I looked through your templates but I don't see any examples with anything like this.

    I've attached the form for your reference.

    It Is possible to convert Fillable PDF form to JotForm Fillable PDF form. To do that please use this link and select Create fillable PDF form > Convert PDF Form.


    However it is not possible to convert PDF form to online form. If you want to have online form, then you will need to create it manually from scratch, with our Form Builder. 

    This guides can help you to create your first form: 



    Regarding your other question, it is possible to perform calculation inside of the form. Inside of this guide you can find how to perform calculation inside of the form: 


    Demo form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/50446897619975 

    Considering that you mentioned that calculation should be performed based on what the customer selects, you will probably use dropdown field, radio button field or check box field. To perform calculation with this fields you will need to assign calculation values.
