I have an application form I would like to email to clients and have it set up so they just type in their answers on the form I email to them. I do not know what program to use. Does anyone know how to get this accomplished. Right now the form can be printed out and the person completing the form has to print it off and snail mail it back. I would like my application form to be a simple fill in the blank that can be emailed back to me. Please tell me how to accomplish this or find someone who can do it for me. It is two pages long. Greatly appreciated.

Hi Laura96 well...


1) If you got a website you can add to it something called "forms", now what forms will do is have your form on your website and people can go to your website and fill out the form. Once they click "send" the form will be sent to a e-mail specified in the code.

What you need for the above is a website designer to make it for you, as it will be the easiest way. I do not recommend you doing this unless you are familiar with website design, like html, xhtml, css, and php. Desining forms and scripts takes time to learn and understand.
You can do it yourself but it takes time and patience, the programs that you will need to do what you want are:

Kompozer: This will help you design the web page and the form to add to your current website.

and this other link to get the php code to send your form to a e-mail:

Good-Luck, :blink:

Laura, there is an easy solution to making a form that someone can fill in. You will need to purchase PDF Pen Pro. I don't have the Pro version, but I would highly recommend PDF Pen. The "normal" version allows you to edit and cut and past into pdf fills and also contains a fairly good OCR for scanned pages.

The Pro version allows you to do all kinds of stuff including making pdf files that have spaces that can be filled out by anyone and e-mailed back to you. I don't remember the price, but it is reasonable. Goggle PDF Pen!

Hope this is helpful.
