How to Electronically Fill out A Form

  1. Windows
  2. Mac OS

Step 1:

First navigate to your desired PDF form. In this example I am using the about you PDF form found on our bishop’s employee site. From here you will download the pdf by clicking on the small folder icon in the top right. This may be different for other browsers.


Step 2:

Save the file.


Step 3:

In the bottom left click on the manila folder to open Windows File Explorer. From here navigate to your downloads folder.


Step 4:

Right click on the file and open with Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you are using a personal computer you can download Adobe Acrobat Reader for free here. You do not need the Pro version to fill out a form.


Step 5:

Once the form is opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader you now just need to click on an empty field and start typing.


Step 6:

Once you have filled and signed the form (click here to learn how to electronically sign a document) the only thing left to do is to save the form. To do so go in the top right and click on File > Save as. This will allow you to save in a folder of your choice. Make sure to save it somewhere you have access to. All you have left to do is upload, email or send the document in.
