Has anyone tried to use the submit button on a fillable PDF form to send data into smartsheet? Doens't seem to difficult but could use some guidance.
Thanks for reaching out! Have you checked out our DocuSign app? This is probably something close to what you're looking for. If it's not, could I have you let me know more details on what would be different about what you'd like?
Thank you for the response. I did look at that plug in which takes data from smartsheet and inserts it into the formletter.
What I want is to fill out a fillable pdf form and click the submit button on it to send the data to smartsheet.
You could probably set this up with zapier, but I have another idea that I will check and get back to you if it works.
I hope this helps you!

Feel free to contact me about help with Smartsheet, integrations, general workflow advice, or something else entirely.
Hi again Scott,
How often will you need to send pdf forms?
Many each day - a few dozen perhaps.
Can you send me an example pdf form?
I am curious - would a web form work in this scenario? I am assuming the fill-able pdf is "living" somewhere outside of smartsheet?
Hi again Jef,
I missed your reply because of the previous issue with the forum.
Did you find a solution?
Following up on that. I would like to set up similar things. I am trying to deploy a reimbursement system for my office.Once a person submits a form via smartsheet, I need to have a PDF pre-filled with all of the info including the ones that will be linked to other cells.
Once the PDF is prefilled, I will need it to go thru DocuSign for signature. Once the user signs I will need to have smartsheed trigger an alert/change status of the row by "ready for submission".
You could absolutely do that with the Google doc or/and the DocuSign integration. Let me know if you need help setting it up. I'd happily work with you and create a solution.

How did it go? Did you manage to get something set up?
I am also curious as to the ability to import information from a fillable pdf directly to Smartsheet. Thanks for any solution you can offer.
How would you like to use it?
I'm looking for a similar solution to what Matthieu mentioned above.
Once a user fills out a Smartsheet form it is logged into my tracker. From there, I want to extract some fields into a fillable pdf and have the user sign the document. What are your suggestions?
Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])
Hope that helps!
Have a fantastic week!
