PDF fillable Form

PDF fillable Form

MHMichel
Explorer | Level 4

I have created a fillable PDF form with several fields on my computer. Then this form has been synchronized with Dropbox.
The form works fine except when it is used from Dropbox Web version (Impossible to modify the form). 

If the form is imported from Dropbox Web into my computer, it is working fine. 

I would like to know what should be done on Dropbox to allow the use of this fillable form using Dropbox Web version.

Many thanks.

I think the issue is that Dropbox isnt a hosting platform - so it has nowhere to 'send' the filled form in as the Dropbox website doesnt process HTML etc. It is simply a way to preview files. 

The only way to do this is to get the person to download and save it before then completing it.

Thanks a lot for your answer and clear explanation. 

This is confirming what I was thinking.

No problem at all. I'll continue to explain to the other users of this form that they have to download the form before filling it.

Take care and thank you for understanding my english as I'm french.
