Before forms can be used with Forms-2-Go app, they need to be converted into HTML format.

Solution #1 – Do It By Yourself

Step 1 – Convert existing form into HTML format
- If you have Word (or Excel) form, open it in Microsoft Word (or Microsoft Excel), and Save it as "Web page (*.htm, *.html)" file with ".html" extension.
- If you have PDF form, open it with Adobe Acrobat (not Acrobat Reader), and Save it as "HTML Web Page" file with ".html" extension.

Step 2 – Examine saved HTML file
- Make sure that HTML form layout corresponds to your original form;
- The Forms-2-Go app supports the following controls within HTML forms:
   Text (<input id=" some_id_1" type="text" />)
   Checkboxes (<input id="some_id_2" type="checkbox" >)
   Radio buttons (<input id="some_id_3" type="radio" >)
   Text areas (<textarea id=" some_id_4">)
- Make sure that each control (text field, checkbox, radio button or text area) has unique (within the form) "id";
- If the form uses images (like logos), please makes sure that these images are embedded inside the form (and not stored as separate files) by using Data URI scheme
<img src="data:image/png;base64,…>
- If needed, make required changes in HTML file;
- Make sure that file has ".html" extension.
