I created a form in Microsoft Word. I need to make this available to our employees in the field (without Microsoft account), so they can fill it out, and save a copy preferably directly to our sharepoint folder, alternatively locally to their device so they can email it to us.

 

How an I achieve this?

I could of course just upload the document, create a share link with edit access - but the problem is of course that they will edit the original document. I obviously need the original document to be read only, and the users to edit a copy of it.
