Are you using a PDF fillable form for business or personal use? If yes, then you probably know how easy to fill it out compared to the traditional unfillable PDF format. But, what are the different methods for you to share it with your friends, colleagues, or customers?
Most of the time, forms come in a very popular format called PDF. Unfortunately, this type of file format can’t be filled out directly. Users can’t easily edit PDF files when they don’t have much technical background. It’s a challenge for anyone who urgently needs to edit or fill up a PDF file. But, luckily, PlatoForms lets you edit your PDF fast and easy online. What’s more? It can be shared to anyone!
With PlatoForms, there are pretty easy ways to share your PDF fillable form. Here are some that you might want to try out:
1. Public URL
A public URL works as easy as 1-2-3! You just need to secure the random URL assigned to your PDF and that’s it! You can just then send the URL to those you want to share the PDF with.
To find the URL, just log in to your PlatoForms account. Then, on the Dashboard, hover to your target PDF fillable form. Hover to the top right corner of the form and click on the settings icon. Then, click on Share.
2. Embed Script
Another way to share your PDF fillable form is by Embed. It can be used to publish the form in a website. If you want to level up your ways of sharing a PDF form, you can have the form to show up on your own website by embedding the script.
Just copy and paste the script and paste it into your page to display the form. Else, if you don’t know your ways with HTML codes, just secure the code and provide it to your web developer.
3. Custom Domain
The custom domain works the same way as the public URL. The only difference is that you can opt to using your own domain name to make your PDF fillable form appear to be more whitelabeled.
To activate this settings, just log in to your PlatoForms account. At the left side of your screen, click on your username below your avatar. Then click Settings to open your account settings. At the last tab, is Custom Domain tab.
