    If I understand you correctly, you have a form in a physical paper and you want it to be converted to an online form, is that correct?

    It is possible for you to scan the hard copy of the form and make it a PDF file. After that, you can use the Fillable PDF Creator to convert the PDF form to become a Fillable PDF form.

    Please take note that this is a fillable PDF form and not a web form. Here's a related guide: Fillable-PDF-Everything-you-need-to-know-about-JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
