What our users say about Jotform Smart PDF Forms

The Smart PDF Forms feature is unlike anything I’ve ever seen on any other form builder. It allows my business to convert a collection of confusing boxes into a user-friendly text box form for my clients. The information goes directly into the PDF and once completed a copy goes to our clients and another to us. The unique form link is also something we find very useful. It allows up to have customers access our form directly from our website. I couldn’t be happier with Jotform and it can only get better.

Jotform has been a game-changer for us. We utilize Jotform for a myriad of different forms for different divisions of our company where multiple paper forms are condensed into one Jotform. Before in a paper form system, the user would have to enter their information separately on each form, we have streamlined all of those entries and signatures down to a handful of required fields and it fills in each form accordingly.
