If you cannot find an acroform to use, there are tools available to create one. PDFescape is a free pdf editor that can be used to create a pdf with writable fields. For more complicated PDFs (tables.etc..), consider using the paid PDFescape Ultimate version. Refer to the mapping rule guide lines in the table below.

Warning

Do not use Adobe LiveCycle to create or edit acroforms. Live Forms cannot process PDFs created with this platformThe tool that Adobe uses to create PDF's does not support integration with third party software. Use PDFescape to generate acroforms for mapping with Live Forms.

Some acroforms may not have a writable field for all of the data that you want to collect. For example, the signature field on such forms as the I-9 or W-4 acroforms. The Employee On Boarding form/flow collects information to populate the W-4 PDF after the new employee completes the

Frevvoproduct
 screen flow. Another step of the flow asks the new employee to review the PDF and sign if the information is correct. Mapping the
Frevvoproduct
 signature to the generated PDF cannot be accomplished unless there is a writable field in the W-4 template. You can use a PDF editor  such as PDFescape to add a writable field for the signature to your acroform template.
Frevvoproduct
 signatures are treated as images that can be mapped to text fields so be sure to add the acroform field as a text field. Upload the modified acroform as your PDF template.

PDF acroform (non-flattened) that comes from a frevvo submission is external to

Frevvoproduct
.  There is no way to save changes to the pdf unless the submission is edited, changed and re-submitted.
