How to publish a PDF form to a webpage for anyone to sign and complete

Last Updated: Dec 08, 2017 02:48AM CST

If you have a document that needs to be filled out and signed by a lot of people and would prefer to not have to send individual Sign Requests each and every time, then the best way to do that is to publish the PDF form to a DocHub URL and simply give the signers the public URL which they can go to in a web browser, complete the form, and email you the final, signed document. 

If you haven't already, you'll want to 
create a template which is a master copy of the file and then add any PDF form fields (if it's not already a fillable PDF form) and then share the URL with your signers. If you already uploaded your document as a regular document  don't worry. You can easily convert it to a template without having to re-upload it.  then add any text, signature, or other fields to it (if it's not already a PDF form with fillable fields, and you'd like it to be) while in Edit Template mode. Then, to share the URL with anybody which they can go to in a web browser and fill out their own personal copy in their own DocHub account. They'll see a button to Fill a Copy in the upper right corner and once they complete the form and Finalize it, you'll be emailed a notification with the finalized PDF attached (just be sure to make the fields you absolutely need them to fill out as required). In addition to you getting the email notification with the finalized document, the signer(s) can also email it to anyone or download it and share it however they'd like. If they don't have a DocHub account yet, they will need to Login first and/or create a free account using their Google or Dropbox account credentials or with any email address. The article below explains about how to add form fields and how to get the Share Link or make it public which also includes how everyone can email the completed form or download it as PDF first:
