Make Your PDFs Fillable and Save Them to any Computer or Cloud with Editable Fillable Fields

One of the most common feature requests that PDFfiller’s support team developed over this past year of 2017, was the ability for users to save fillable PDF forms to a computer or cloud storage with editable fillable fields. Now, why exactly is this so important?

The Problem of ’locked’ Fillable Fields Slows Down your Business Workflow

Let’s say you want to send an invoice with fillable fields to be completed by your business partners.

Transforming any static invoice, survey, application, contract or agreement into an interactive fillable PDF form is fun and easy: you just drag and drop smart fillable fields onto your document.

You don’t have to worry that your invoice will look different on a recipient’s desktop or mobile screen: a fillable PDF invoice will preserve the format of the original document.

The problem that arises once you decide to save a fillable PDF form to your computer is that your invoice is no longer dynamic. In other words, the fillable fields in your PDF are not editable. Sending this invoice to your business partners is always a risk: if they don’t have tools for editing PDFs installed on their computer, they won’t be able to quickly fill out and send you the document back. Installing special software like Adobe Acrobat Pro to a computer takes almost an hour and it will cost you somewhere between $180-$250 just for a single download. Besides this, learning the functionality of a complex product for editing PDFs can take up to three hours. As a result, you won’t have all the necessary documents in time to close a deal.

Simplify your Document Workflow and Make Clients Happy

Good news: PDFfiller has managed to solve the problem of ‘locked’ fillable forms. You can now save your fillable document as a PDF file on your computer or cloud storage while preserving the editable fillable fields! You can now share the same fillable document with multiple customers and business partners as many times as you need. Once a recipient downloads a fillable document to a computer, they can quickly complete all fillable fields even if they are offline, simply by using the available desktop tools.

How do I Export my Fillable PDF Form with Editable Fillable Fields?

Once you’ve added and customized fillable fields into your invoice, click the orange DONE button and select Save As from the drop-down menu.

Choose the format for the invoice you’d like to save and specify the destination place.

Set Export Options: enable Save with Fillable Fields to make your invoice editable offline even without special software. Once your clients receive the invoice, they can easily download and complete it on any device in minutes.

If you want to save only the information you’ve added to the fillable fields, enable the Save Content Only function. This option comes in handy if you need to transfer your data to a blank document of any format.

To make sure you never lose your invoice on a hard drive or on cloud storage, add PDFfiller to your document’s name.

Finally, protect your fillable invoice with a password.

Click Save As to download the fillable invoice with the selected options.

Now you’re done! The whole process takes less than a minute. Now you can email your invoice to recipients so they can enjoy completing it offline even without special tools.
