Fillable forms / cloud storage

Post by a.nix@gmx.de » Tue Nov 27, 2018 5:54 pm

It seems like a trivial problem, but I can't find a way to do it:

I would like to collect input from users through a fillable PDF form. The form should be stored online so that external users can access it - for example at a cloud storage provider such as Dropbox, Google Drive or Onedrive. I would like to share the PDF with several external users (by sharing a link), allowing them to enter form data and save the form when done. Filling the form should be possible in a web browser, not requiring the form to be downloaded. Is anyone aware of a solution that would allow this?

Hello,

I am afraid that the Editor does not have a method to do this. The best option is to have the webpage offer a download link to the file, and then embed a button on the document to "submit a form" and setup that action to email the FDF file to a specific email address.
