Fillable PDF's in SharePoint

New Contributor

Hey All,

I have set up a Fillable PDF in SharePoint for my team to be able to fill it out to track hours on a project. When I open the PDF in SharePoint it doesn't give me the option to fill it out, I have to download the file from SharePoint in order to insert text and then re upload it to SharePoint. Is there any way to make it so that I can fill out the text in SharePoint using my fillable PDF so that I will not have to continue to re- upload it each time?

SPO does not provide this feature, to be able to fill a PDF form in SPO you need to have the ability to fill it in PDF Cloud: https://global-sharepoint.com/sharepoint-online/edit-pdf-file-from-sharepoint-online-site/

@BJacobs it would be much easier to use the built-in features of SharePoint and the Power Platform. For example you could have a Power Apps-customised SharePoint form which the users complete.  If you need the final result to be a PDF you could create that from the entries in the list using a flow in Power Automate. Alternatively you could have a simple Power Apps app which would add the items to your list in SharePoint. A few things there to consider.
