How to make fillable PDFs with form fills on Android devices.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur or a school teacher, you might find yourself wishing you had a digital form to send out to your clients or students. A fillable form can help you streamline the process of collecting information, whatever the purpose. With Adobe, it’s simple to create, even on the go.
You can use an Adobe Acrobat Pro account to create a fillable form on the fly with any Android device.
First, you can download a PDF manager on your Android, such as Adobe Acrobat. You can then open the app on your device or mobile browser and use it to create a new form.
Alternatively, you can use the Adobe Fill & Sign mobile app and follow these steps:
- Scan a printed form with your Android’s camera.
- Tap to enter your form fields.
- Tap the checkmark to finish.
- If you create a new form: Add fields to your fillable PDF to collect information like text, multiple-choice, signatures, and so on.
- If you scan a hard copy: Proof your document to make sure you aren’t missing any fields.
You can also convert other file formats to a PDF with Acrobat online services.
Share your fillable PDF from your Android.
A fillable form can help you collect information for many different purposes. Perhaps you’re a teacher and you’ve sent out fillable PDFs in place of a permission slip. Having those filled out forms accessible on your Android could be helpful if you need access to the information while you’re on the go with students on a field trip, for example. Perhaps you need information from a client you’re working with. Creating a fillable form from your Android can mean sending an email just minutes after an in-person conversation so that your client doesn’t forget who you are and what information you need.
Once your fillable PDF has all the fields you need, you can share it with:
- Students or Parents
- Clients or Customers
Send PDFs that are ready to fill and sign directly from your Android via email or your PDF manager. The best way to share a fillable form is to create and share a link.
