    Olá, preciso que o preenchimento fique automático. O cliente insira os dados no formulário de inscrição e esses dados já preencham o documento dentro do site de forma automática.

    É possível?

    Hi Miriã,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support. Unfortunately, our Portuguese Support agents are busy helping other Jotform users at the moment. I'll try to help you in English using Google Translate, but you can reply in whichever language you feel comfortable using. Or, if you'd rather have support in Portuguese, let us know and we can have them do that. But, keep in mind that you'd have to wait until they're available again.

    Now, let me help you with your question. Yes, you can use our smart PDF, which automatically fills out your PDF documents when the form is filled out. We've made a small guide explaining the main aspects of Smart PDF Forms that you might find helpful.

    1. Creating a Smart PDF form:

    • Go to your My Forms page, and click on the Create Form button.
    • After clicking on it, select Import Form and click on Import PDF Form.
    • Then, it will redirect you to the Smart PDF Forms page.
    • Now, click on Upload PDF and upload your document to Jotform.

    2. Matching form fields with the original PDF document:

    As a default feature, whenever a PDF document is uploaded to the system, it automatically connects fields with the original PDF document. If there is any problem with the connections, you can manually connect your form fields with your PDF document. It’s really easy. Let me show you how:

    • In Smart PDF Forms, select the field that has no connection with the original PDF document.
    • After selecting it, click on the Add to PDF button.
    • Then, move your cursor over the PDF side of the screen, and then position and resize it the way you want it.

    • In the menu that appears on the left side of the screen, you can add anything you like.
