Ever tried to fill out a PDF form online but quit midway because it’s tiring to put the same information over and over again?

We get you.

Thankfully, we finally launched our Pre-filled Invitation Forms! With our pre-filled forms, you don’t have to waste your time inputting the same information again. PlatoForms pre-filled invitation forms serve as auto-fill form data–it populates the specific fields with previously entered information. Now, you can send online forms to your clients with their pre-populated information.

What are the benefits of PlatoForms' Pre-filled Invitation forms?

  • Save time

Since pre-filled forms act as auto-fill form data, it enables you to send forms with pre-filled information from previous submissions. Your customers don’t have to fill out pdf forms online with the same details again, saving their time and effort.

  • Keep track of your forms

To monitor your online forms, our invitation feature includes the status of each form. In this part, you can check whether your form was successfully delivered in your client’s email or not.

  • Customize your fields

Our pre-filled invitation forms are highly customizable! Now, you can set up specific fields that you want to hide. In this feature, we included “Read-only” for fields that you don’t want your clients to modify and just read, and “Hide” for some fields that you want to remain unseen.

  • Promote more completion rate

With pre-filled forms, clients don’t need to type the same sentence over and over again–enabling them to have a higher chance of submitting finished forms!

  • Lessen errors

Since pre-filled forms are inputting information from the previously filled forms, mistakes are unlikely to happen.

  • Share your forms easily

Our pre-filled forms are equipped with an invitation feature that you can easily share with your colleagues, customers, and more.
